OKLAHOMA CITY– A group of agencies that are working to help victims of the recent natural disasters is transitioning to focus on long-term recovery efforts.

Beginning July 3, the Red Cross and partner agencies will remain available to individuals.

A call center has been set up to field calls for those needing help.

Officials say it will be staffed seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

In addition to responding to calls, caseworkers are also reaching out to those who have not been able to meet with the Red Cross.

The Red Cross is now drawing up plans on how to support Oklahoma communities using the $28.4 million that was donated.

Organizers say they will use the funds for its emergency response, provide additional assistance for families who need help, build safe rooms in homes, help schools be prepared for the next storm and make repairs to buildings and infrastructure.

To ask for assistance, call 1-866-477-7276.
