In the aftermath of the recent Oklahoma wild fires, the total number of families needing ash-out help has risen to 282 across the state.

We really need an army of volunteers on the ground everyday for the next month to accomplish this task. I am calling upon every able bodied Oklahoma Disaster Relief team member to prayerfully consider assisting in this effort.

You can help for one day, a full week or all month. No special training is required. You may bring church members that are not DR members. They will get a safety briefing before working and they must sign a liability release. Non-trained volunteers are used at times when we need debris removed after tornadoes and now fires.

If you can serve please be at one of the three listed areas by 7:00 am each morning. Bring a bed roll if you need to stay overnight. If you are coming as a group, also call the site closest to you to let them know. Then the feeding crew can plan ahead and the leadership can have enough group leaders each day.
