Mellow Mushrooms in Fayetteville and Rogers shipped donations to the United Way in Conway Wednesday morning. Volunteers have been accepting items all week including canned goods and baby food, along with blankets and clothes.
"The community has really brought a lot of stuff and they're really awesome," says Heather Smith, manager of Mellow Mushroom in Rogers. "They've done a great job. It's our state in Arkansas and any time we can reach out and help everyone, it's our job as a community."
The local restaurants also donated 15% of their sales to the Arkansas Red Cross last week.
