Ways to help tornado victims


Woodward, Okla. — Woodward County EMS

The Woodward County EMS has set up collection barrels at both the Woodward Ambulance base west of 13th St. on Downs Ave. and at Woodward Regional Hospital.  The EMS is collecting everything from baby items such as diapers to work gloves to food and water or whatever people are able to give.  The items will be collected through Saturday.

The Cross Spur Ranch will be heading to the Moore, Oklahoma City and Shawnee areas on Thursday.  Contact (580) 216-6672 or (580) 216-6671 for more information on how you can contribute.

Families Helping Families

The organization located in the Living Word Fellowship is taking donations in 4 ways.

• Dropping off water or Gatorade at the church. A container will be in the church parking lot to store water and Gatorade donations and when enough is ready for a full truck load, it will be delivered to Moore. Living Word Pastor Eric Cox said the goal is to have a truck load ready within 2 weeks. "I know from the experience (in Woodward) that after a couple of weeks people are going to need more supplies," he said.
