CORPUS CHRISTI - You can make a difference in assisting victims of the deadly Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

When attending games at Whataburger Field starting Wednesday, please donate good-quality clothing for all ages, canned goods, toiletries, blankets, bedding, tents and bottled water at the 40-foot trailer provided by Ainsworth Trucking. The trailer will be parked in front of the ballpark's main gates.

Cash donations are needed to cover other needs.

Hooks staff will man the trailer from 90 minutes before first pitch until the third inning. Donations made after the third and during business hours can be left at the Whataburger Field offices, right of main gates.

"Ainsworth Trucking is working in conjunction with the API (American Petroleum Institute) chapter in Oklahoma City to facilitate the delivery of goods to people in the affected areas," Hooks president Ken Schrom said. "I know our staff and fans will join with Ainsworth and API in responding to the great need of Central Oklahoma."
