WACO -- People in Waco are continuing to collect donations for victims of the Joplin tornado.

From big corporations to local churches, everyone seems to be helping out.

That includes local Pizza Huts which are donating a portion of their sales to Joplin since some of the stores there were hit.

"It will give us the opportunity to, you know, make a little bit of a difference and have the people of Waco and surrounding Central Texas areas to hopefully make a difference in these people's lives."

Local church, Calvary Chapel, has already taken truck loads to Joplin.

"The houses run together now because all the debris is scattered. You can't tell whose property is whose, you can't drive down the roads. It's like a junkyard," says Pastor Albert Fuentes.

The church is now getting ready for another trip.

Fuentes says people in Joplin are still in desperate need of water, work gloves and any type of tools to help with clean up efforts.
