A small Tulsa County town is trying to help victims of the Asian tsunami.

The Collinsville Community church teamed up with the Masonic Lodge for a pie auction at the high school. Organizers got the idea from a community tragedy last June, when their church was destroyed by fire. Another church in town hosted a pie auction to raise money.

It was such a big help, they're doing it again this year. This time, it's tsunami victims that will benefit.

Mike Branen with the Collinsville Community Church: "Once somebody needs some help, they always kid in and see what needs to be done and that's being part of the community. Just giving back what we've been given."

All of the money raised from the auction will be given to the American Red Cross Tsunami Relief fund.
