MOORE, Okla. – The first delivery of helmets to Moore, Oklahoma schools affected by the May 20th 2013 tornado was a huge success.

March 22nd  the next shipment will be sorted and delivered to 14 more elementary schools in Moore.

Staging will happen at Southmoore High School and donated trucks will deliver to the schools later Saturday morning.

The American Red Cross, United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund, Oklahoma City Thunder, and members of the Moore community and beyond have donated over $250,000 towards this initiative.

Moore Helmets for Schools is an organization created in response to the devastating tornado which struck three local schools while classes were in session.

The organization’s goal is to provide helmets which can be easily cleaned as needed and then re-used each academic year in all Moore Public Schools.
