Folks from around the state and around the country are digging deep into their wallets and purses to help out the survivors of the Greensburg tornado.

Pizza Hut will donate more than $140,000 to the United Way Greensburg Disaster Fund following a special promotion last week.

The company announced it would donate 20 percent of its sales at all Pizza Huts in Kansas on May 10 to support those affected by the tornado that decimated Greensburg.

More than 150 restaurants in Kansas and bordering states participated in the benefit, Pizza Hut officials said.

KSNW has raised $225,000 and "still counting" from its two-hour telethon Friday, news director Todd Spessard said.

Another KSNW effort, the "round-it-up" program with Dillons, has generated more than $130,000, Spessard said. That program continues through Sunday.
