“We’ve been overwhelmed by trying to respond to the needs of our community. We’re very grateful that Somebody Cares and its network has come alongside, helping us do what we have not needed to do before!”

and coordination of relief. Generator provided by another partner,
Mercury One. This is the
Net that Works!
Somebody Cares partners are on-site providing hot meals, as well as doing assessments of both the primary disaster zone and the outlying areas that often get overlooked.
While delivering food to devastated areas with Church of the Harvest – part of the SC network – partner Victim Relief Ministries found many tornado survivors who needed personal ministry. One woman’s wheelchair bound grandfather couldn’t get to the tornado shelter in time and so hid in a closet. The house was completely destroyed, and she feared he was gone. But in the midst of the debris, the small closet was still standing with her grandfather safe and sound.
Currently, our network is distributing essentials including meals, water, ice, generators and much more. Additional cooking teams are
being deployed, warehousing is being established, communities around the country mobilized to help collect gift cards and supplies, and heavy equipment being identified to help once clean-up gets underway.
At times like this, you and I have a tremendous opportunity to be tangible expression of Christ to those who are suffering. As practical needs are met and recovery continues, may each one know that Somebody truly does Care, Jesus.
Join us in providing physical, spiritual, and emotional relief to the people of Oklahoma!
