A north Tulsa's church youth group, Pathfinders, needs about $1,500 to go on a youth conference on Wednesday.

2 Works for You first reported on the story two weeks ago when a tornado ripped through the Bethel Seventh-Day Adventist Church located on 46th Street North.

The church's insurance covered the Pathfinder's damaged drums, but the group is having another setback.

Its pastor says three other groups in the region were supposed to ride with them, but they canceled at the last minute.

He says they're still trying to raise the money to cover the trip's transportation, meals and room expenses.

Even with the youth raising about $400 in chocolate sales since the tornado, they're still short about $1,500.
