Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A truckload of supplies for tornado victims in Oklahoma is just hours away from arriving.

A La Jolla couple is driving the truck carrying hundreds of boxes of donations collected by local Military wives to Moore, Oklahoma.

Local Military wife Diana Noshang is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the big gift she sent to her best friend's family and other people hit hard by the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma Monday.  

She and Melanie Boss started the "Military Mothers Movement" on Facebook Tuesday to collect supplies to send to Oklahoma.

In just a matter of days, the relief effort grew to 300 boxes filled with donated goods. The only problem, they didn't know how they were going to get all this stuff to Oklahoma.

That's when La Jolla residents, Maureen and Gordon Dunfee, saw the story on News 8.

They rented a U-Haul truck and are now personally driving it to Oklahoma.

The Dunfee's left San Diego Thursday took Interstate 8 to Arizona then Interstate 40 through New Mexico and Texas. Thirteen-hundred miles and some 30 hours later, they'll arrive in Moore.

Diana is working with the Gate Church in Oklahoma City, it will be helping distribute the donation where it's needed.
