Local volunteers have sent more than 53,000 lbs. of relief supplies from NW Ohio to Moore, Oklahoma, through ISOH/IMPACT. Another 24 pallets is scheduled to be shipped on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m., to the region hit by a deadly F-5 tornado on May 20.
Relief supplies are starting to run low at the Waterville distribution center, according to volunteers. ISOH/IMPACT needs help restocking its shelves with essential items in order to continue supporting recovery efforts in Oklahoma.
You can make a monetary donation to ISOH/IMPACT's disaster relief or operating fund, donate bank or fuel gift cards, volunteer at the Waterville distribution center, or donate items needed for the Bucket Brigade, including cleaning supplies, personal care items, first aid supplies, canned and non-perishable food items and pet supplies.
No clothing or glass containers are needed. Bottled water is not needed at this time either.
ISOH/IMPACT also accepts paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, disposable tableware, laundry detergent, trash bags, new tents, tarps, brooms, mops, rakes, shovels, box fans, work gloves, shop vacs, generators and new children's clothing.
Volunteers say some of the items that are especially needed include: manual can openers, peanut butter and canned meats, canned fruits, laundry detergent, sunscreen, new 5-gallon buckets with lids, and all sizes of zipper bags.
