Help for Moore, Oklahoma
Following yesterday's news of the destruction caused by the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma, Orphan Grain Train's Disaster Relief Coordinator has been working to establish exactly what is needed and how we can best assist in the relief effort there. He is working with a Disaster Response Coordinator in Oklahoma, who is in the process of compiling a list of immediate needs. As soon as we have that list, we will pass it on to you. We know this will be a costly endeavor, so if you would like to make a donation to help offset the cost, you can do so on our donation page. Checks can be made payable to Orphan Grain Train, marked "Domestic Disaster" and mailed to PO Box 1466, Norfolk, NE 68702-1466.
