Red Cross Sending Aid to Oklahoma, Shares How You Can Help

Posted: Updated:

The American Red Cross has sent specialized disaster relief teams to Oklahoma to aid those affected by Monday's devastating tornadoes.

They have sent workers with supplies and equipment to the area, but more help is needed. The organization has asked for individuals wanting to help in the relief efforts to send a donation to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.

They can donate by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. These donations help provide food, shelter and emotional support to those affected by disasters.

The Red Cross says they've deployed almost 30 emergency response vehicles to distribute food and relief supplies and more are on alert. In addition, two Southern Baptist Convention kitchens and kitchen support trailers will join the relief effort with the ability to serve tens of thousands of meals a day.

Emergency aid stations will open where people can get food and snacks, mental health and health services and information about what help is available. Shelters have also been set up across parts of the Oklahoma City area.
