Heavy metal bar serves as tornado victim donation site

01 Jun 2013

A heavy metal night club called Zombies, located in the 4200 block of Thousand Oaks, organized a community effort to receive donations of drinking water, baby food, and other essentials to be shipped to Oklahoma tornado disaster areas. Club manager Toni Torres coordinated the effort with volunteers. Hundreds of hours have already gone into this effort—it's very little sleep for Torres and others who work late into the night loading supplies for shipment. The shopping center owner allowed the bar to use an unrented store space located next door as a staging area for the donations. A semi trailer was parked next to its back entrance; a volunteer truck driver will take the next shipment to Oklahoma on Sunday, 2 Jun. Already, there have been three shipments.

As this effort continued from the tornadoes that struck Moore, OK on 20 May, five tornadoes slammed through Oklahoma City last night that took the lives of nine people. Oklahoma's death toll is now at 33. In Arkansas, the toll hit 3.

The dropoff point is located next door to the club at the intersection of Thousand Oaks and Nacogdoches in northeast San Antonio. They usually open the drop off location around 11 to 12 noon.
