Rincon police donation drive runs until Friday

The Rincon Police Dept. is contributing to the effort to help tornado victims in the south.

They're collecting donations at their headquarters on West 17th Street. They're also teaming up with Toomers for Tuscaloosa tornado disaster relief efforts to help the victims in Alabama and northern Georgia.

They are asking for non-perishable food, baby items and hygiene products.

"My goal is to hopefully, as you see in this room, we haven't collected all of the items yet. I want this room full. i want to have the opportunity to ask for another trailer. I know our community can do it, and I am waiting for them to do it," said Cpl. Jose Ramirez of the Rincon Police Dept.

Items can be dropped off at the Rincon Police Department from 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. now through Friday.
