Challenge

On May 19th and 20th, 2013, Oklahoma was hit hard by multiple tornadoes. Moore, OK was hit hardest by a deadly EF5 tornado.These tornadoes have caused massive damage, which continues to worsen with the flooding that has followed. Oklahoma is just beginning the long road to recovery, with some of its rebuilding under time constraints, and survivors and new damage just being discovered due to lack of communication.

Solution

Do Your Part has been instrumental in disaster relief and long term recovery since Hurricane Katrina by on the ground service and by supporting our partners on the ground with vital information and resources, also aiding in the coordination of donations. This fund will be used to secure needed items, for survivors and their animals, along with case management assistance. Do Your Part, will assist in providing fencing which is an uninsured item, along with personal needs.

Long-Term Impact

All disasters require the hard work of local, and national dedicated disaster relief organizations, but they cannot do it without the support of the entire country. This fundraiser supports Do Your Part's work along with that of our partners, and the local organizations; these organizations are the first on the scene and the last to leave sometimes years later. These funds will go to identify and aid the most vulnerable during the long road towards recovery and sustainability.
