John and I have family down in Moore and we are getting together a vehicle load of supplies to take this weekend. If you have any donations to make, please call. Please no donations of clothes, toys, or furniture. Our family didn’t lose their home this time. They did in the ’99 tornado, so they know first hand of how blessed they are today. For a list of needed supplies, go to www.journeychurch.tv. or call us at 620-326-6499.

You can drop off any items that you have to my office at 118 E Harvey in Wellington, or the District Office in Wichita at 8428 w 13th St N Wichita, KS Several of our agents are planning to go down there and help where we are needed.

The Moore Animal Shelter needs the following: they need crates, bowls, bleach, towels, paper towels, newspaper, cat litter, litter boxes. They have a truck load of Purina dog food being donated so they are good on food. All those items need to be delivered to the Cleveland County Fairgrounds at 615 E. Robinson in Norman. Thank you!!!

From what I saw the Red cross shows up gets their picture taken with the governor or other dignitaries orders people around, then leaves to be home to watch themselves on the news. then ups the salary of their “officials because of what a good job they did. There are many great organizations out there and even more people who just show up and help.

The Mennonites ( Mennonite disaster relief ) are top notch, the Methodists ( United methodist committee on relief UMCOR ) is also a great group. The Methodists and Mennonites will be there for years low key and you’ll seldom hear about them. Report Reply 0 replies · active 377 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
