Marco's Pizza filled a 53-foot semitrailer Wednesday with supplies bound for Moore, Okla., to help tornado relief efforts there. A company spokesman said Toledo-based Marco's has a strong presence in Oklahoma, including a franchise owner in Moore. The company said supplies will be offered to affected Marco's employees and their families as well as the general community. The spokesman also said the parking lot for Marco's store in Moore will serve as a Red Cross Relief staging area.

(The semi was filled at the Marco's Pizza Distribution Center in Maumee.)
