How You Can Help Oklahoma Tornado Victims

How You Can Help Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Share

This week, a massive tornado touched down in the Oklahoma City suburbs, wrecking havoc, destroying countless homes, and killing at least 24 people — nine of them children. As a preventative measure, the mayor of one particularly ravaged town, Moore, Okla., declared this morning that an ordinance is to be put in place requiring storm shelters or safe rooms in new homes. As the city now begins rebuilding itself from ground up, Oklahoma residents are in desperate need of aid from all across the country. Read on for how you can help.

Red Cross Disaster Relief fund: The Red Cross suggests giving blood at your local hospital or blood bank, as well as making a monetary donation via the organization's local chapter.

Donate $10 to the Disaster Relief fund with a text message: Text the word REDCROSS to 90999, and the donation will simply appear on your wireless bill. It's worth the two-latte sacrifice.

Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma: To donate in conjunction with Oklahoma Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, head to the food bank's website, or text FOOD to 32333 to give $10.

OK Strong Disaster Relief Fund: Established for long-term medical, emotional, and educational needs of Oklahoma's tornado victims, donations can be made by calling (405) 236-8441 or donating online at unitedwayokc.org.

Central Oklahoma Humane Society: Donate to provide this organization with towels, paper towels, bleach, gloves, and crates to help with lost and injured animals. Donation forms, here, should be designated for the "OK Humane Disaster Relief Fund."
