The devastating May tornadoes have left most Oklahomans stunned and wondering what they could do to help.  United Way of Central Oklahoma advises that monetary donations are the best way to assist. The organization has activated its disaster relief fund effective Monday, May 20, 2013, so individuals may contribute specifically to the May tornadoes relief and recovery efforts.

“We are reactivating the disaster relief fund at the request of many of our donors and corporate partners who are seeking an efficient and accountable way to assist with the relief effort,” said Debby Hampton, President and CEO of United Way of Central Oklahoma.

Fund dollars will be distributed without administrative fees to United Way Partner Agencies working on the tornado relief efforts.  Agencies must clearly prove services provided and demonstrate need for financial support.  Organizations that receive United Way disaster fund assistance will be evaluated and held strictly accountable. The May Tornado Relief Fund will serve both immediate needs, intermediate, and long-term care.

United Way of Central Oklahoma’s Disaster Relief Fund has operated to meet needs after the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, the tornadoes on May 3, 1999, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and other disasters.  In each circumstance, United Way has effectively and efficiently distributed donors’ dollars to serve as many people as possible while maintaining the highest level of accountability.

GIVING SUPPORT: Financial contributions are the best way to help unless otherwise requested. United Way of Central Oklahoma’s Disaster Relief Fund is open.  Donations may be made online at www.unitedwayokc.org or by mail to United Way of Central Oklahoma, P.O. Box 837, Oklahoma City, OK  73101 with notation for May Tornado Relief.
