OKLAHOMA CITY — Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO) disaster relief volunteers are serving various communities in the wake of the March 25 storms that swept across central and northeastern Oklahoma.
Trained volunteers were out determining needs of the communities within the hour after tornadoes struck Moore and Sand Springs, where one person was killed.
“We have more than 50 trained volunteers who will be involved in chain saw clean-up work, mud removal, ‘roof tarping,’ chaplaincy counseling, and more,” BGCO Disaster Relief State Training Director Dave Karr said. “It is vitally important to serve people, meeting both their physical and spiritual needs.”
Storm victims may request assistance from the BGCO disaster relief operation by calling 405-443-7583 or visiting www.okdisasterhelp.org.
Those who wish to help storm victims by volunteering, or by making a tax-deductible donation to the BGCO disaster relief, can visit the same website for more information.
