How to Help Those Affected By the Tornadoes in Oklahoma

tornado-small

If you have been watching the news you know the devastation that has happened in the Oklahoma City area. I feel so badly for those affected and I am praying for them. I can’t imagine going through a disaster like it. It is just heartbreaking.

If you are wanting to help I have some information for you. Carrie of Coupon Closet who lives in the tornado area has shared some ways you can help. Some of these opportunities are for those of you who live close by and for those of us who are far removed there are ways you can help too.

Here’s the opportunities Carrie has to share with those of us who wish to help, 

Now is the time for us to help.

As couponers, we can unite and help out the victims.The saying “something is better than nothing” is not true in this case. They NEED specific items.

I am updating this post REGULARLY with places that you can donate. Right now, MONEY is what they need. Any amount is good. Any link that I include on here are secure links and are safe and your money will be put to good use.

Monetary Donations:

You can donate any monetary donations via THIS website. This is the United Methodist Church and the money will go directly to those affected.
