Gateway Grassroots has secured an open lot, two large trucks, and the blood, sweat, and tears of volunteers seeking to serve their brothers and sisters. GGI invites you in this initiative to gather and ship desperately needed items for the victims of Monday’s devastating EF5 tornado.
We will be staging the effort at Kirkwood Lowes, time and day TBA once structures are up in Moore to receive aid. Non-perishable items may be dropped off for donation. Non-perishables will not be accepted.
Items most requested: Bottled water – Gatorade – Wipes – Diapers – Baby formula – Hand towels – Individually wrapped snacks – Work gloves
No clothing, please.
If you would like to make an immediate donation, per Dana Loesch:
Salvation Army: Text STORM to 80888 to donate $10 to the recovery and relief efforts
Red Cross: Text REDCROSS to 90999 for Redcross to give $10
Mercury One is taking online donations and sending trucks
Items that you may purchase on location to donate: boxes – work gloves – eye protection – face masks – hand trucks – hard hats – shop cloths (towels) – gift cards – bottled water – storage bins – food and water bowls for pets – shelving units – packing tape – markers for labeling
Also, if you care to join us and help collect and load items, and you happen to have a hand-truck or dolly, please bring it. It would be tremendously helpful.
