Red Cross Taking Donations For Oklahoma Tornado Victims

The best and quickest way to help Oklahoma tornado victims is to donate to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund at RedCross.org or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10.

Throughout the nation, including Oklahoma, the Red Cross has local connections and partnerships already established in order to help provide FREE material, nutritional and emotional help for everyone affected. The Red Cross provides food and clothing from sources as close to the disaster site as possible, in order to keep the economy moving in the affected areas. Financial gifts give immediate help to those in need.

Of every dollar donated, 91 cents goes directly to helping victims of disaster. The Red Cross relies on the generosity of volunteers and donors to carry out our Mission of providing immediate needs to victims of disaster.

Red Cross Taking Donations For Oklahoma Tornado Victims — 1 Comment

  1. The donations you are texting into the Red Cross doesn’t come here to help Oklahoma! http://newsok.com/oklahoma-tornadoes-red-cross-text-donations-not-designated-for-oklahoma/article/3828381
    “It goes to general disaster relief. It is not designated to Oklahoma or any specific disaster relief.” “Right now we are assessing what will be needed,” Garcia said. “The money will be raised for what is needed in Oklahoma. We don’t like for it to be designated to one event. Oklahoma is a state that is prone to disasters.”

    “Borrego responded that if people wish to donate to their local chapter — the Oklahoma Red Cross — they should do so via local agency’s website. She said she believes the agency clearly expresses how it will use donations sent via text message.”

    “We tell people to donate to disaster relief so we can then determine how those funds are used to support communities when they are needed most,” Borrego said.”

    Please people, find another source to donate to if you want to help Oklahoma and share this so others know as well! Contact some of the funeral homes here and ask how you can donate to help pay for the funerals of the victims. Or here is another link to help: http://piratenpad.de/ep/pad/view/ro.FtWMWE5ajeU/latest
