HOW YOU CAN HELP
On Sunday May 19th, Monday May 20th, and Friday May 31, 2013 the cities of Little Axe, Shawnee, Bethel, El Reno, Mustang, Yukon, Bethany, Del City, Midwest City, Moore, Newcastle, and Oklahoma City were struck by devastating Tornados. There are thousands of displaced victims, damaged homes, and a great deal of need. Highland Baptist Church was in the path of two of these storms & tornados, but they missed the church by only a few hundred yards leaving the church building relatively undamaged. We are within the declared damage area, and extremely close to the neighborhoods affected on the East side of Moore placing us in a unique position to help those in need. At this time we are partnering with Operation Blessing (ob.org) to coordinate volunteer efforts. Volunteer groups are partnering with residents with specific needs. As the home owners register at Highland, we are sending groups of volunteers to assist them with those needs.
6 weeks into this effort, Highland Baptist Church in conjunction with Operation Blessing International is continuing to provide assistance to the residents of Moore, and the surrounding affected areas from the May 19th, May 20th, and May 31st Tornados. We have processed over 1000 work orders, and have dispatched over 5000 volunteers since beginning our relief efforts on May 20th, only minutes after the tornado narrowly missed our church building.
