Hughes will collect supplies until Saturday at 10 a.m. His mom, Lori Lookadoo, said she will be happy to pick up supplies from anyone who wishes to donate. The mission team will take a trailer of supplies with requests for bottled water, canned food, diapers, wipes, pet food, hygiene products, trash bags, toilet paper, batteries and flash lights, as well as any other items.

The team is also asking for monetary donations for those that can help with gasoline and other supplies once the team arrives in Oklahoma.

Lookadoo said it would be great if the people in Polk County could also pray for this team and those in Oklahoma throughout next week.

“This is a good opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus, carrying love to those who are in desperate need during a critical time in their lives,” said Lookadoo.

Hughes graduated from Polk County High School last year and plans to attend Fruitland Bible College in the fall.

Lookadoo said anyone who wishes to make a donation and the drop off locations are not convenient to contact her at 828-817-9434 and she will come and pick up the supplies.
