Do Your Part is humbled by all the support each of you has shown, along with that of Global Giving, with this project and other projects of ours. There is still much to do in Oklahoma, and people have been very generous in assisting these survivors in reaching sustainability.
Since the last report, which mostly keyed in on all the holiday season gift giving, there has continued to be repairs or replacement of items lost as people enter into new or repaired places of residence.
As we enter, yet, another severe weather season, we think of each of you and where you live and wish all of you safety each and every day, to you and your families. We hope none of you live in Mississippi as they were hit by a tornado in the early morning hours on April 7th, with 60 homes damaged in the tornado and more with the flooding that followed, if you ever are in need, please contact us. We will be opening a page for Mississippi.
We end this report with a few pictures of the Hillian families goat farm, this is a family that we have been helping from the beginning. This family had so much damage, with fencing completely gone, animals scattered, and severe mold from the storm. This family would like to send their personal thank you out to all of you for your help, because of your support that helped replace the fencing that saved their goats and their livelihood.
As always thank you all for your help,
Oklahoma and its people are working towards sustainability, and thanks to GlobalGiving, and you, our donors, we are fortunate to be there to assist families, children and individuals. One family of 3, with an infant, lost everything, they managed to get an empty apt; then, with the help of some wonderful businesses in Oklahoma, we were able to provide furniture, a bed, and stock their kitchen, with gift cards they were able to buy clothes. Another family with a number of animals which were part of this families income, were scattered when they lost their fences, and then the mold took over. The family took care of the mold and we supplied the fencing and a number of compassionate volunteers got the fence up, along with helping to rebuild another building on the same property. Again all of these supplies were purchased with the help of GlobalGiving, the donors, and Oklahoma businesses working with us in an effort to assist the people in their community. The above is just a couple of stories, we have also been able to help with much more including temporary housing, food, and clothes. With our partners we assisted in a Christmas in July event for the children affected by the tornadoes. It was a great day!
Do Your Part would like to thank all of our donors for making this and so much more possible. You are the unseen heroes to us and to the many lives that your donations have touched.
