The Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief teams can be donated to here. BGCO Disaster Relief is the 3rd largest relief organization in the world. Many of the meals delivered by the Red Cross are prepared and provided by BGCO Disaster Relief. 100% of every donation goes to help people in need. Administrative costs are covered by Oklahoma Southern Baptists through the Cooperative Program.
Samaritan's Purse is another organization that is already on the ground helping in Moore and Shawnee and the towns in Texas that were hit last week.
The Red Cross is taking monetary donations and also asking for blood donors.
However you choose to help, remember also that your prayers are always needed and welcomed!
Hi everyone! I live in Dallas and have family in Moore. Fortunately, my family was spared significant destruction, but I know many were not.
In a small, grass-roots effort to help, I am collecting coupons from friends around here and am going to try my hand at an "extreme" coupon run. I plan to donate the goods to churches and other organizations there in Moore.
Since I'm not local, I am not familiar with the coupon practices there in Oklahoma. My friends there tell me Homeland doubles coupons up to $1 but are there any other coupon rules I should know about? Is this really the best place to shop? Any information you can give me would be much appreciated!
I'm selling a gently used coupon binder, it is in great shape. It has 65 baseball card pages for coupons and 11 pages for your store policy's or anything else.
It also has several pockets for scissors, pens or miscellaneous things. I live in the OKC, Moore area. photo 4.jpgphoto 2.jpgphoto 1.JPGphoto 3.jpg
