Operation Compassion Mobilizing Relief Efforts to Oklahoma

By , May 21, 2013

 

Once the tragedy in Moore, OK became apparent, Operation Compassion began to formulate a strategy for relief efforts. It was not long before our disaster relief partners were contacted and plans were made to mobilize as quickly as possible. Warehouse employees began to stage 25 semi-trailers of bottled water, blankets, food and cleaning supplies as the first semis began moving early Tuesday morning.

In addition, Chaplains are ready to go with us to help survivors navigate the emotional upheaval to their lives. Our heavy equipment, clean-up crews and building partners are ready to leave on Wednesday. Also, several mobile canteens and cooking crews capable of cooking 1,000’s of meals a day will begin to leave on Thursday.

Two churches and a five acre plot of land have been secured for disaster relief. Southern Hills Church of God located about 7 miles from the hardest hit area, Riverlife Church of God located in Moore just 3 blocks from the epicenter and 5 acres of land for our heavy equipment at the intersection of Interstate 35 and 240.

Pastor Garvie of Riverlife Church was contacted yesterday and Operation Compassion will be able to work out of his church once we gain access to the devastated area.
