Walmart says it is pledging $1 million in cash and materials toward the recovery from the tornado that devastated Moore, Okla. And the company said Tuesday that it’s sending workers from Missouri, and Arkansas, Kansas, and Texas to the affected areas so members of Oklahoma crews can be with their families.

Walmart is also sending truckloads of food, water and other basic items to serve as immediate aid.

The company says no customers or employees were injured in its two stores in Moore. But the company says some workers' homes were destroyed and that it is still checking on the needs of its employees.
