Red Cross Gets $13,000+ in Donations for Tornado Victims

Posted: Updated:

The American Red Cross says it now raised more than $13,000 on Wednesday for victims of the deadly tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.

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.

A local teen is also looking to help -- collecting new and gently used teddy bears for the young victims in Oklahoma. We collected 700 teddy bears on Wednesday alone!

Current drop off locations are In Motion Studio of Dance at 9410 Prototype Dr, Suite 20 in South Reno and Advanced Pediatric Therapies at 1025 Roberta Lane in Sparks. More drop off locations are being added, so please check www.yfkcares.com/bears-for-oklahoma to get a current list. You can also call 775-636-6539.

Hannah is also accepting household donations like toothbrushes, toothpaste, diapers, diaper rash ointment and first-aid kits until June 2nd.

You can also check for more drop off sites being added, or donate money online to www.redcross.org/charitable-donations

You can also show your support with the Restore Moore campaign

The website restorejoplin.com was set up after an EF 5 tornado hit Joplin, Missouri in May 2011.

The group is now selling restore Moore t-shirts to help those impacted. T-shirts cost $20 and the money raised benefits nonprofits in the Oklahoma City area.

This same effort raised more than $250,000 for the victims in Joplin.
