Today, we offer our prayers to all of those touched by the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma. During times like these, we all wonder how we can help. I’ve offered a few options below:
- United Way of Central Oklahoma: Per their website: “The organization has activated its disaster relief fund effective Tuesday, May 21, 2013, so individuals may contribute specifically to the May tornadoes relief and recovery efforts.” Click here to visit their website and donate.
- Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief: The BGCO DR assists with everything from bringing in meals to those affected, to organizing certified chain saw teams that can assist in the hardest disaster areas. Read about them here and learn how to make a donation.
- Red Cross: One of the most well-known organizations offering assistance is the Red Cross. Visit their website here to make a donation.
While the spirit of neighborliness was important on the frontier because
neighbors were so few, it is even more important now because our neighbors are
so many. ~Lady Bird Johnson
Oklahomans aren’t that different from Californians, Chicagoans, Michiganders or Carolinians. If the tables were turned, and we lost everything, we would all hope help would be available. Support your neighbors.
