VOLUNTEERS, DONATIONS NEEDED

Posted on May 20 2013 in Act Now

Moore, Oklahoma has been devastated. Families destroyed. Children gone. What do we do in this country? We help each other. We help each other grieve, we help rebuild. If you can read an article online, you can take a second to donate. If you can spend an afternoon at the pool, you can just as well spend it loading life necessities onto a truck to those who have lost everything. If you can Tweet or get on Facebook, you can click two buttons to send cash.

Here’s how:
