Roosevelt Elementary School and North Elliot Church of God are partnering together to help victims of Monday’s tornado.  Items will be collected Wednesday-Friday from 9-3 at both locations.  Donations will be taken to Southern Hills Church of God in Moore to help with the tent they have set up.  Whitney Larremore’s husband is a minister at the church.  Please limit donations to water, Gatorade, nonperishable, ready to eat food items, baby wipes, hygiene items and money.  Checks may be made out to Southern Hills Church of God.  Kla-mart will be taking the items the beginning of next week.

Shipman’s Funeral and Cremation Services and The Pryor High School Student Council are uniting to collect the items seen below for the Moore tornado victims. You can drop the items off at Pryor High School (Wednesday or Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; Friday at PHS Graduation) or at Shipman’s. For more information call Evett Barham 918-639-7232.

Roberts Auto Center is accepting donations of supplies to deliver to Moore. SUVs will be parked at both Robert’s locations to fill and deliver to a designated Red Cross drop-off center. Misty Edwards, Roberts Auto Center employee and local Red Cross Board Member, says she will keep loading and sending vehicles as long as the donations continue.

Water, bleach/cleaning supplies, feminine hygeine products, diapers, water and first aid supplie are all welcome. Monetary donations will be accepted and turned over to a Red Cross representative. Edwards said the money is often used to buy items in bulk, which meets the current need and helps boost the Moore economy.

Edwards asks that no clothes be donated at this time. For more information call Edwards at 918-825-5410.
