The Chicago Cubs are joining in on the efforts to support those affected by the devastating tornadoes that ripped through Illinois on Sunday.

The Cubs are hosting a drive at Wrigley Field Thursday and Friday and are encouraging fans and residents to donate non-perishable food and supplies to the cause.

Gov. Pat Quinn earlier this week declared 13 Illinois counties as disaster areas.

Donated items can be dropped off in Wrigley Field’s Purple Lot on Clark Street from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Thursday or from 8 a.m. - 11a.m. Friday. The donated items will be delivered to Peoria on Friday.

Items most needed include tote bags, plastic trash cans, plastic storage bins and gloves, the team said.

For more information on items to donate visit the Cubs website.

The Cubs aren't the only Chicago sports team working to help the victims.

The Bears are auctioning off game-worn and game-used equipment from their overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday to raise funds for tornado victims.
