Southern Region Oklahoma Emergency Relief Fund

Scores of UUs from the Southwestern Conference, the Southern Region and all around the country have responded with abundant and characteristic generosity to the request for funds to help victims of the tornado that devastated Moore, OK, on May 20. The first gifts arrived within 20 minutes of the announcement that the Southern Region would receive gifts for the whole country, and donations have continued to pour in.
As you might imagine, there were no quick decisions about how the funds would be used, other than the basic intention to help victims of the storm. Since that initial announcement, First Unitarian Church of Oklahoma City has stepped forward, and will use our collective gifts to provide relief for undocumented immigrants, a special class of storm victims. First Unitarian Church is working with St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, and together they have begun to assess the needs of individual families.

If you want to contribute to this worthy cause, please use First Unitarian Church's PayPal link to make a donation (a preference that will minimize the church's administrative work), or you may mail a check, made payable to First Unitarian Church with "Standing on the Side of Love" on the memo line, to:
First Unitarian Church of Oklahoma City
600 NW 13th St
Oklahoma City, OK 73103
Funds that have been - and will be - sent to Orlando and/or Charlotte will be paid to First Unitarian Church of Oklahoma City to be used as indicated above.
