Student athletes from MacMurray College are heading to Washington to do whatever they can to help.
Two members of the college's golf team were directly affected by the tornado. One student's home was destroyed, and another has family members who lost theirs.
Derek James, who coaches men's and women's golf and the women's basketball team, told us a few players from all three sports came together and decided they needed to do something.
"That's what we are," James said. "We're family. We're more than just a team. We spend lots of time together, and that's one thing around here that we all talk about, is our family. And any time family has a problem, we're there for them."
James said what they're doing isn't organized or school sponsored. He said he and his players just feel the need to get involved and make a difference.
