MOORE, Okla. —

The people of the Oklahoma town where a deadly tornado struck could use just about everything - cleaning supplies, food, water, shelter.

Thirteen-year-old Halle Carr thought residents of her hometown could also use a hug after the twister Monday that killed 24 people in Moore.

Halle has been standing on a corner with a white sign that reads: "Need a hug? I am here!" And people are taking her up on the offer.

On Friday, people in work trucks, cars and vans loaded with belongings rolled down their windows and reached out their arms to the girl. Some shouted words of encouragement.

Halle said it makes her feel good to spread a little cheer. She said she'll come out every day, as long as she thinks she's needed.
