For Moore, Please Hold Material Donations

After the tornadoes that struck Oklahoma last month, Americans from all over donated what they could – principally money and unsolicited material donations. Where money gives the community flexibility to purchase exactly what is needed for relief and reconstruction, unsolicited material donations can pose obstacles to both.

It appears that the City of Moore, OK has asked that no more unsolicited material donations be delivered to Moore until they have a system in place to manage them: http://www.cityofmoore.com/update-about-donating-goods-and-materials. Unsolicited material donations are anything that the relief organizations in Moore did not specifically ask for. Apparently donations of used clothing, canned food, toys and other items are taking up space needed to stage and distribute more essential relief and rebuilding supplies.

The City is accepting monetary donations to four funds: the General Disaster Fund, the Animal Welfare Fund, the Safety Personnel Fund and the Moore Public Schools Foundation. There are buttons on the website that make it easy to contribute: http://www.cityofmoore.com/

Big kudos to everyone who’s working in or with the relief organizations in Moore, and to those who are still laboring in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy.
