March 31, 2016 – Tulsa, OK - The Salvation Army of Arkansas and Oklahoma is continuing to respond to those affected by the late Wednesday afternoon and evening storms and tornado that hit northeast Oklahoma.
The Tulsa Metropolitan Area Command deployed their canteen and an Emergency Disaster Response team to Rogers County at the request of Emergency Management Wednesday night and provided meals, snacks and hydration until early Thursday morning to first responders as well as residents affected by the tornado that touched down near Claremore, Oklahoma.
This morning, the Tulsa Command’s canteen has been deployed to the North Tulsa area near 36th Street North and Hartford Ave. to provide relief the first responders, residents and clean-up crews working in the area hard-hit by the Wednesday night storm.
The Salvation Army is working closely with emergency management officials at the local and state levels to ascertain what the needs are for emergency response.
Monetary Donations are always needed to offset the costs of services to storm victims.
Donations of Household Good and Clothing:
Due to the emergency situation, The Salvation Army cannot guarantee that any individual donations of household goods or clothing (gifts-in-kind) will be sent to the disaster area. In times of disaster, our stores fill these needs from existing, pre-sorted stock. PLEASE continue to donate gently-used household goods to your local Salvation Army store. You will help your community and help us prepare for future disaster relief needs. To find your nearest drop-off location, please go to www.satruck.org.
All donations for disaster services will be used for disaster response.
