Volunteers are lending a helping hand to residents after a tornado left behind
a path of destruction in Southwest Oklahoma.

People from all over are driving supplies to the hardest hit areas of Anadarko.

A twister touched down last week damaging dozens of homes and businesses. 
Hundreds of people were also left without power for days.

Volunteers have been cleaning up and helping the city rebuild.

Storm victims say they are thankful for all the assistance they are getting.

Emergency officials say federal funds are drying up quickly.
And residents are holding out hope that Anadarko will be declared a disaster
area so they can receive help from FEMA.

Meanwhile, organizers for the food drive say almost 800 families got supplies
on Wednesday.
