Residents of Reading, Mass., decided to collect money to help their Kansas counterparts.
A May 21 tornado killed one and destroyed 54 of the 101 homes in the Kansas town, which has only 250 people.
A resident of the Massachusetts town, Donna Toole, visited Reading this week to learn what it needed. She plans to return to Massachusetts and share that information with that city’s 25,000 residents.
Toole says the town is collecting money and will decide how to best help the Kansas community.
The help began this summer, when several youth organizations in Massachusetts sent $3,500 to rebuild Reading’s park area.
