A church in Bloomfield plans to take donations to victims in Oklahoma. The First Baptist Church has spent the last two days collecting water, diapers, baby wipes and baby formula.

Organizers said they only wanted to focus on those four items. Daniels Snow, a youth pastor who helped organize the donation drive, is from Oklahoma.

"We do have some Oklahoma ties I grew up there and recognize all those places on TV and we have friends that have specifically lost homes."

There are still a couple of hours to donate. The church is accepting baby supplies until 8 p.m. tonight. They will drive to Oklahoma tomorrow morning to drop off the donations.
