Muscatine company sends trucks of supplies to Oklahoma tornado victims
With thanks to their fellow community members, employees from a Muscatine corporation were able to send down two semi-trucks of supplies to tornado-ravaged Moore, Oklahoma.
The Hawkeye Haulers loaded-up and sent down the trucks full of supplies for tornado victims on Sunday, June 2, 2013.
The president of Tan Tara Transportation Corp., Mike Riggan, got the effort started when he decided to help out after the first tornado stormed through Moore, Okla. on May 20, 2013.
According to Tan Tara’s Safety Director, Dave Riggan, the Cities of Muscatine, Davenport and Eldridge helped collect supplies. Another boost of donations came from Ed White Elementary School.
“We’re part of a community; we’re part of a state that is there to help everybody, and not just our fellow Iowans, but everybody in this great nation,” said Dave.
Once the trucks get to their destination, the Oklahoma Sooners football team will be helping to unload the trucks.
