GRAYSON COUNTY, TX--- It's been a little more than a month since the town of Moore, Oklahoma was wiped out by an EF5 tornado. The violent storm killed more than 20 people and injured more than 300.

After feeling compelled to help those affected by the devastation, members of the Grayson County Salvation Army went to Moore earlier this month. Five volunteers spent about two weeks in the town. They served survivors and first responders by providing them with food and drinks.

The volunteers returned home on Monday and tonight the Salvation Army Oklahoma Divisions Commander showed his support for their hard work by giving them certificates of appreciation.

"These guys were really working hard," Major Don Wildish said. "The numbers showed they were the hardest working disaster team there."

Volunteers said they're thankful for the recognition, but that they don't need their name on a certificate to feel fulfilled.

"I would do it all over again," Ricky Price said.

Donations to the Salvation Army's tornado relief fund can be mailed to:

PO Box 12600

Oklahoma City, OK 73157

Donors can also give online at www.SalvationArmyUSA.org or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769).
