Red Cross Oklahoma Tornado Donation Drive a Success!

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday, KTVN along with the American Red Cross and Atlantis Casino Resort Spa teamed up to collect donations for victims of the Oklahoma tornado.

At the time of this writing, we collected about $9,000 and 700 teddy bears.

We caught up with a few of the people who stopped by to donate. They told us why they wanted to come down and donate.

"They need us, and we know we can trust the Red Cross to get it to the right place and the right time, and when it's needed," says Judi Gesh.

Gary Ambulia adds, "I'm very lucky to have a little extra money, and it makes me feel good, man!"

And Joseph Miller adds, "I just felt like we needed to come out here and just give something. Just a little bit out of my pocket. I'm on disability, but I felt like I needed to at least give something."

If you want to help victims in Oklahoma City, donate to the American Red Cross at http://redcross.org or text REDCROSS to 90999. Family members can all call FEMA at 1-800-621-FEMA or go to okstrong.ok.gov.

The Red Cross plans to send supplies and volunteers to Oklahoma as soon as possible.
