Volunteers have played a major role in the cleanup efforts in Washington, Indiana after a tornado devastated portions of the city.
The Volunteer Center was implemented by Washington Mayor Joe Wellman.
It is located at the corner of Sycamore and Meridian Streets at The Assembly of God Church.
The Center has been running since Monday morning.
350 volunteers offered help on Tuesday with another 200 helping out on Wednesday.
The Volunteer Center has been so successful that the support has been greater than the demand.

Christopher Wiles- Volunteer Coordinator
"I've been in disaster relief for fifteen years. This is my seventh tornado to follow, but the first in my home town. I've always been on the giving end, now I'm on the receiving end. It just makes you tear up and just well up with pride at the giving nature everyone has."

If you are in need of assistance the Salvation Army is also set up at the corner of Sycamore and Meridian Streets at The Assembly of God Church.
They are offering three meals a day, including a hot lunch, to those affected by this disaster.
