The largest nonprofit group in a North Texas county where a tornado left six people dead will organize local donations for recovery.

Hood County officials say Wednesday night's tornado destroyed dozens of homes in Granbury.

April Mitchell with Mission Granbury, Inc. said Thursday that the group will be helped by churches in the community about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

People wishing to donate supplies and other emergency items can call Mission Granbury at 817-579-6866.

Mitchell says Mission Granbury last year served nearly 26,000 individuals with assistance for crime victims, a food bank, housing and financial services.

The Red Cross is also providing tornado recovery assistance.
