Volunteers work Tuesday at the Pope John Paul II Family Center at St. Matthew's Catholic Church in Longview to load a semi-tractor-trailer with donated items to be sent to families in need after Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. More than 24 pallets were loaded into the trailer and sent south with another expected to be sent on Friday.

A collection site for items needed in relief operations in the wake of Hurricane Harvey at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church in Longview will close at 5:30 p.m. today.
