Last month's powerful tornado that killed 24 people in Moore, Oklahoma also injured 70 children. Now a group of volunteers in Danville wants to help those young victims.

Volunteers were busy Thursday morning turning pieces of fabric into superhero capes. Their goal is to make 250 of the colorful creations. Friday, they'll fly the capes to Oklahoma and hand them out to preschool and kindergarten students who survived the deadly tornado.

The organization Kiss the Toad Creations started making superhero capes four years ago for autistic kids and cancer patients.
