FAYETTEVILLE, AR. --- The Arkansas Crisis Center and Z's Brick Oven Pizza teamed up on Monday to help those affected by the tornado in Central Arkansas.

Mary Katherine McKinley with the Arkansas Crisis Center said the profits from Monday night's fundraiser will be going to a specific charity already on the ground in central Arkansas.

"We're going to give them to Team Rubicon. They pair veterans with first responders and they use veterans to help in the disaster area," said McKinley.

McKinley said the Arkansas Crisis Center will continue to provide support for residents, not just in the weeks after the storm, but in the long journey ahead.

"After the crisis, when everything kind of settles and it really starts to sink in what happened, you're gonna need the resources," said McKinley.
