A Kansas City relief organization brought some sweetness custard to tornado victims in Moore and El Reno Monday.

"Taking It To The Streets" began 15 years ago as a group who fed the homeless. After the tornado in Moore two weeks ago, the group drove up 9,000 bottles of water, Gatorade and snacks to victims and first-responders.

Monday, they brought two-thousand servings of Sheridan's Frozen Custard and 4,000 cookies. Jan Cline lost her home in the El Reno tornado last Friday. Tears rolled down her cheeks as "Taking It To The Streets" Founder Scott Lamaster handed her an ice cream cone.

"People have just been awesome you know," she said. "My house is gone, but I wasn't hurt, and my neighbors are okay."

Lamaster said "Our whole organization is to bring hope help and healing."
