11/22 Cubs fans chip in
The Cubs received enough donations for tornado relief victims to fill a 53-foot semi-trailer truck plus an additional moving truck, and everything was delivered to Peoria, Ill., on Friday. Among the items donated were containers, cleaning supplies, gloves, flashlights, clothing, food, toiletries, pet supplies, and school supplies. The Cubs worked with the American Red Cross, which provided a list of items needed. Some fans drove from Indiana to make a contribution at Wrigley Field. Volunteers also helped sort, load and unload the items. Volunteers at Brewers Distributing Company in Peoria helped the Cubs staff unload the trucks, and that site served as a distribution center for the Red Cross.
