A local coffee company helped raise more than $190 for the Oklahoma Tornado victims on Tuesday.

Tim Curry owns "Wood-Fire Roasted Coffee" on Ohm Place in Reno.

His sister lives in Oklahoma City. She took a photo from her front yard of one of the tornadoes in the area Sunday.

Fortunately, she wasn't hurt.

Because of Tim's close ties to the area, he decided to donate 100% of today's sales to those impacted. "It was very scary for her. She sent a picture of the tornado that was couple miles away."

Lemoin Skiles adds, "I think it's wonderful to do for everyone."

If you want to help victims in Oklahoma City, donate to the American Red Cross at http://redcross.org or text REDCROSS to 90999. Family members can all call FEMA at 1-800-621-FEMA or go to okstrong.ok.gov.

And on Wednesday - Channel 2 News is joining with the Red Cross and the Atlantis to help raise money for the Oklahoma tornado victims. We'll be set-up to take your monetary donations in the west parking lot of the Atlantis – near the northwest corner of South Virginia and Peckham Lane.

We'll be there from 11:00am to 7:00pm on Wednesday, so come by and see us as we work together to help those affected by today's devastating tornado.

As we learn of more benefits and fundraisers for the Oklahoma victims we'll be sure to keep you updated.
