Disaster Relief Distribution Center Open to All Moore Residents in Need
May 28, 2013
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma has opened a Disaster Relief Distribution Center at 2635 N. Shields in Moore over the weekend. The center is open to all residents who have been affected by the tornado, including those who sustained minor damage.
“Supplies are available for everyone in Moore who has been impacted by the tornado, not just those who have lost their home,” said Rodney Bivens, executive director of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. “Many of our neighbors have gone without power for nearly a week and lost all the food in their refrigerator. They also need support to stock their shelves with much-needed items.”
The Distribution Center is stocked with items such as: food, shovels, gloves, trash bags, safety goggles, paper goods, diapers, personal hygiene products, snacks, packing boxes, water and Gatorade. The center is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily and will continue to serve residents for many months to come.
