This update is over 30 days old.

At this time, we are asking donors to hold donations until we have a long-term system in place to get each item to the people that need it most. We also urge you to think about long-term needs for those who have lost their homes and businesses as you decide on ways you are able to contribute. There will still be a need in the coming weeks and months for donations. Additionally, we are working to compile a list of what those long-term needs may be. See Full Update Below: Update about Donating Goods and Materials.

The State of Oklahoma, FEMA and VOADs (Volunteer Organization Active in Disaster) are putting a system in place to better manage the goods and material donations that are coming in from all over the country. Your generosity and thoughtfulness have helped Central Oklahoma region and other areas through these challenging days and will continue to help as we begin to rebuild our homes, businesses and community.

If you would like more information on what kinds of items would be useful to donate once our system is put in place, please do not hesitate to call the hotline at 1-866-484-3500.

We cannot thank each and every donor enough for the incredible outpouring of support that Oklahoma has received this last week.

Monetary donations can be made to United Way of Central Oklahoma, American Red Cross, Salvation Army or any of the links listed on the City of Moore website.
