If you are looking for ways that you can donate to Moore, Oklahoma, this is a way, According to EMA Director Dave Clippert.

I would like to discourage people from organizing a material donation. Many corporations in the US will donate food, water, gloves, clothing etc. The people of Moore will have many financial needs long after the disaster is “over.” Material donations only go so far, and then victims of disasters need money to rebuild their lives.

There are many organizations that you can donate to, such as the American Red Cross, Salvation Army and many church organizations have relief efforts on-going in Moore. Unfortunately, there will be many scams associated with Moore, so please be careful who you give to. Do not donate money over the phone if you have received an unsolicited call for help, Clippert advised.
