Last year on December 26th, the day after Christmas Day, an outbreak of tornadoes occurred near the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, metroplex. The area of Rowlett was hit the hardest by a violent EF-4 tornado. Many families lost everything as houses were completely destroyed, and donations for gifts and toys are being accepted for affected children.
Donated gifts and toys, according to other local news agencies, are available for areas hit the hardest by the tornado, including: Copeland, Garland, Glenn Heights, and Rowlett. There will be a drop off from 10:00am to 2:00pm CST on November 26th and December 3rd at the Rowlett Bowl-O-Rama. Other locations will be posted later on according to donation organizers.
