In the aftermath of the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma, we have found Military families and First Responders in need through Tinker Air Force Base and the Oklahoma National Guard. We are preparing care packages and pallets of materials to send out asap (hopefully by Friday or early next week, and continuing as needed).
We welcome your help in collecting items and/or donating funds to help with the added shipping costs.
Here are the most needed items — for your convenience, you can find many of them on our Amazon.com “Wish List” which ships directly to us:
2. Clothing: Any type of new clothing: Men, Women and Children.
3. Entertainment items: Playing cards, books or any other entertainment that does not require electricity.
4. Morale lifts: Letters to put in care packages.

6. Gift Cards: Gift Cards to national stores or stores located in Oklahoma.
7. Miscellaneous: Sunscreen, diapers, boots, work gloves, batteries of all kinds, flash lights and baby wipes.
We will accept these items at the Armory during our normal weekday hours (9-4) and also this Saturday from 9-4, as we have an Assembly Day scheduled.
