How to Help Tornado Victims in Oklahoma

As we have seen the devastation in Oklahoma City and the rest of Oklahoma, we all want to help out in any way we can. NewsOK has a post up that tells us how we can help out:

RED CROSS

The Oklahoma Red Cross is asking people to donate by texting Red Cross to 90999 which will be a $10 donation, spokesman Ken Garcia said.
Garcia said the donations allow the Red Cross purchase needed supplies.
Those who are looking for family members can visit www.safeandwell.org, Garcia said. Local Red Cross units will be dispatched throughout the damaged area tonight.
“We’re still assessing what we need and where we will be setting up shelters,” Garcia said. “We obviously don’t want to get in the way of rescuers and we want to make sure it is safe but we know this will be a national relief effort.”

The Red Cross also tweeted the following:
