MOORE, Okla. – As families and businesses are still recovering from the Moore tornado, the Moore Public School District got a bit of a boost to help build storm shelters in every school.

Shelter Oklahoma Schools donated $500,000 to the district to help build storm shelters.

“We are both extremely honored to provide these funds to schools through Shelter Oklahoma Schools,” said Rep. Mark McBride. “What happened to our state in the spring was devastating. To know that so many individuals, businesses and organizations, both public and private, have come together and contributed so much to this effort is truly heart-warming. To have the opportunity to be a part of this meeting and pass money on to the very school district that was so damaged in May has been a real privilege for me.”

House District 53, which is represented by McBride, contains most of Moore.

So far, Shelter Oklahoma Schools has raised over $2 million in donations, which will go to various schools around the state.
