Hurricane Harvey Relief
Our thoughts are with our neighbors in Texas and Louisiana, who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. We know of many Oklahoma nonprofit organizations who are sending aid and assisting in recovery and relief efforts.
Here are two ways you may aid directly to the communities in need.
Make a $10 donation to the American Red Cross by texting HARVEY to 90999.
Visit Greater Houston Community Foundation to donate to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
Members of the Oklahoma Oil and Gas Association (OKOGA) will coordinate a one-day supply drive on Friday, Sept. 1, to benefit the Oklahoma Red Cross.
The Oklahoma Red Cross is asking for the following material donations:
- Cases of bottled water (no individual bottles)
- Prepackaged snacks with long shelf life
- Hygiene products such as tooth brushes, shampoo, soap, etc.
- Cleaning supplies such as trash bags, bleach, etc.

While you are looking to donate, please be aware of scam artists who use a host of tactics to capitalize on Americans’ generosity after a major crisis.
