Red Cross Accepting Donations for Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Posted: Updated:

Local Red Cross Chapters are mobilizing to provide much needed assistance to tornado ravaged areas in Oklahoma and Kansas.

According to Red Cross Executive Director, Bob Pearce "Damage to local infrastructure is so debilitating that there is simply no way to ship, store, sort or distribute donated items. We are asking that people who want to help do so by making a financial contribution of any size. Over the next few weeks the Red Cross will undoubtedly spend millions of dollars making sure that basic life needs are met".

Those who want to help can do so several ways:

  1. Text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 contribution.
  2. Make a contribution on line at www.redcross.org.
  3. Make a contribution at the Central Panhandle Chapter, 430 East 15th Street, Panama City, FL 32405.  850.763.6587.
