How you can help Oklahoma.

This is a hard but necessary post to write. If you want to know how you can help, here are some ways.


Please pray for:
  • those that lost loved ones.
  • those that lost their homes.
  • those that are working on the response teams. 
  • the police officers.
  • the teachers.
  • the EMTs
  • the search and rescue teams.
  • my cousin and her husband. They're anesthesiologists at OU Medical and have been working the all call since yesterday afternoon. Last I heard, they received the most critical injuries from this monster.
  • Brandon has a fraternity brother that worked all night in the ER at Integris Hospital. He said it was a very interesting night.
  • My sister and I have several sorority sisters that lost everything, but their families are safe.
  • The BCM directors from my hometown have been deployed to OKC to help.

Want to donate?


One of the easiest ways is to Text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10. It's applied to your phone bill.

  • The Salvation Army Disaster Relief, P.O. Box 12600, Oklahoma City, OK 73157. Designate Oklahoma Tornado Relief on all checks. 
  • Donate by phone: (800) 725-2769 
  • Donate online here

Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief says it has deployed at least 80 volunteers to respond to severe weather in Oklahoma.

Those interested in helping can make a tax-deductible donation to the BGCO’s Disaster Relief ministry online or call (405) 942-3800.

You may also send checks to: BGCO Attn: Disaster Relief 3800 N. May Ave. Oklahoma City, OK 73112.

If you're in Oklahoma, bring needed items to campus/area drop-offs (water, Gatorade, baby wipes, formula, diapers, individual wrapped snacks).
