WAYNESBORO -- As Oklahoma rebuilds after tornadoes ripped through, some good neighbors in the Valley want to make a difference there.

Members of Faith Point Christian Center are planning to visit the disaster zone at the end of June to help.

Randall Black, the pastor at Faith Point, said area businesses and sponsors helped his group get a trailer and collect donations.

He has gone to other areas affected by tornadoes before.

"We just feel that miles don't mean anything. If there is a need in Oklahoma, Texas or wherever, we just feel is our heart and our purpose to go," said Black.

Black hopes to fill a storage unit with items to help the tornado victims. Items currently in the unit are from a trip he took overseas to build houses, schools and churches. He will take some of those items to Oklahoma.

He still needs clothes of all sizes, medicine, construction materials and items a homeless person would need.

Black hopes to raise $10,000.

People can drop off items or checks at Faith Point Christian Center in Waynesboro or Charlie O'Baugh Auto Group in Staunton. Checks can be made to Faithpoint Christian Center with “Oklahoma disaster relief” in the memo.
