Lufkin man collecting donations for Pakistani flood victims

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Following the massive flooding in Pakistan, the U.S. says it will announce additional aid funds for the country on Thursday.

It's already given about 90 million dollars for relief efforts.

Wednesday, the first UN tents and blankets are finally reaching the flood-stricken Northwestern part of the country.

Back in East Texas a Lufkin man known for his generosity is organizing local relief efforts for this latest natural disaster.

Don Turner is asking for donations of non-perishable food, tarps, and water.

You can drop them off at the Lufkin National Guard Armory on Tulane Drive through Sunday.

Turner will be there Thursday from eight a.m. to five p.m.
