Town of Owego, NY (WBNG Binghamton) While families in Moore, Okla., continue picking up the pieces after one of the nation's most destructive tornadoes, a woman more than 1,400 miles away is pitching in on the effort.

Michelle Wiederman, of Apalachin, is asking help in donating money to send care packages to families in Moore who have lost everything.

All of the money will be used to buy meal supplements and toiletries through her company Arbonne.

The care packages will be sent directly to Oklahoma.

"I know that the more supplies we can get down there, the better," Wiederman said. "They really need our help and compassion right now, and I think for everybody all around the U.S. to pool together and help these people out is really important."

She set up a Paypal account on her website where people can donate.

She also created an account with Visions Credit Union in Endicott, and the money will get straight back funding the care packages.
