WASHINGTON, Ill. -- More volunteers made their way to Washington to help with the tornado relief.

On Friday, about 10 volunteers came all the way from Chicago. They are employees of Viridian Energy, a third party energy provider.

The group worked with the Salvation Army mobile feeding canteen, handing out snacks and hot drinks.

"We just want to be able to help," said Curtis Reed of Viridian. "We don't want anything else but to let them know we're here and looking to be a benefit."

The volunteers also presented a $5,000 check to the Salvation Army to help with the recovery efforts.

Some of the volunteers said they are hoping to come back and help out more in the future.
