A press release from the American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma:
Thursday’s wildfire took a devastating toll on Oklahomans – houses burned to the ground, precious family possessions gone, emotional despair.
The American Red Cross is there to help people begin the process of rebuilding their lives.
The Red Cross continues to operate its shelter at the Midwest City Community Center, located on the corner of Midwest Boulevard and Reno. As casework continues for those affected by the disaster, the Red Cross will work with its partner agencies in the community to best meet people’s needs.
The Red Cross also has professional counselors on standby for anyone in need of emotional assistance in the wake of Thursday’s devastating wildfires. For help, call the Red Cross at (405) 228-9500.
The public can help their fellow Oklahomans by making a financial donation to the American Red Cross. All disaster relief provided by the Red Cross is made possible because of monetary donations from the public.
“We are proud to assist our friends and neighbors locally, and we have such strong community support standing beside us in that mission,” said Vince Hernandez, CEO of the American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma. “When you give to the Red Cross, that money stays in Oklahoma to help people who may have lost everything.”
