The Morgantown community helped the victims of the chemical spill in southern West Virginia on Sunday, by holding a collection for necessary items at the Coliseum.

MECCA 911, West Virginia Department of Homeland Security, and the WVU Baseball Team were all in attendance to help carry cases of water and other items into a trailer that will be making its way to Charleston on Monday.

Cars were lined up to help, some people donating more than 20 cases of water. Director of the drive, Mike Wolfe, said everyone needs to take the time to help other people.

"We're helping others. And if this would ever happen here, we obviously would hope that other people around the state would do the same. Its just an easy way for us to say we are sorry you're going through this but we support you. And truly it's West Virginian's helping West Virginian's."

Wolfe said he was amazed at the turnout the event had.

He said the event was such short notice and with the power of social media, the word spread about the collection. The event had only been posted on social media for eight hours.

If you want to help the victims of the chemical spill, or donate items to those in need, head over to the West Virginia Department of Homeland Security Website.
