Kentuckians opened their hearts and wallets to help Oklahoma tornado victims on Thursday.

A total of $3,810 was collected during a Kentucky Cares drive-thru donation in the parking lot of Fayette Mall in Lexington.

The fundraiser was put on by the Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross, ABC 36 and other Lexington media outlets.

Donations were accepted from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

The event will be held in the same location, during the same time period on Friday, May 24th.
