Crowds gather at Poole Elementary School in Dallas
DALLAS, Ga. (WXIA) -- Shortly after an EF-3 tornado blasted Paulding County's Poole Elementary School nearly two weeks ago, 11Alive's Help Desk swung into action.
Mobilizing resources from across Metro Atlanta, the Help Desk, worked with The Home Depot and School Box stores to bring the community to the school.

Viewers and businesses, alike, donated resources to the school, helping to replace playground equipment and other supplies at the school, which were all badly damaged or destroyed in the storms.
Crowds joined 11Alive at the school Wednesday to show just how much the community cared.
The Gannett Foundation also contributed to the efforts with a $5,000 donation to the school.
