The seed warehouse at Big Cob Hybrids in Seward is taking on a second roll this week.  Until Saturday, it will serve as a storage spot for water, diapers, canned food and other goods that will be donated to the victims of Moore, Okla.

"If it had happened here, I'm sure people would be willing to help us," Tyler Dickinson said.  "And we have the trucks to get stuff down there, so lets donate our time."

Dickinson works at Big Cob Hybrids and approached his boss, Ben Benson, earlier this week about helping out.  The owner stepped up without hesitation.

"It just shows that there's a greater good that comes of things like this," Benson said.  "Sometimes, it takes things like this to remember what's important and put things into perspective."

Big Cob Hybrids is one of several local companies donating their time, resources, and trucks to transport the goods south.

"We have the equipment and we have the man-power," Benson said. "One of the reasons we're in business is to help others, and I think it's important businesses come together to do that."

The plan is to leave Saturday morning with four semi-loads full of supplies.  That's about 45,000-pounds per truck.

Here's a list of drop-off locations:

Big Cob Hybrids - Seward

Sun Mart - Kearney

Bill's Repair - Fairmont

Wesleyan Church - Belleville, KS

Inland Truck Parts and Service & North Tractor Supply - Lincoln
