At this time we are not taking in kind donations due to immediate needs assessments and logistics, but please revisit the website for updates.
We are not currently deploying volunteers to Oklahoma, but as needs and requests are made from Oklahoma, we will be posting those on our website as well. IF requested, volunteers who have been pre-approved and trained will be sought initially.
We greatly appreciate your desire and willingness to help those in need, and for your continued prayers for those affected.
Be Aware: Tornado Relief Fundraising Scam Alert
A robo-call from an organization (no name given) mounting an emergency appeal for funds for tornado disaster relief in Oklahoma. The pitch included specific reference to American Red Cross and Salvation Army, with text along the lines of "The American Red Cross and The Salvation Army are on site working, and we need more funds to keep help coming." There was an option to press 1 to donate. The call came from phone number 888-981-6499.
Please be advised that this is NOT authorized fundraising of either The Salvation Army or the American Red Cross. The most secure way to give are on authorized websites and verified phone numbers like 1-800-SALARMY.
