Oklahoma CU Effort Expands in Response to Harvey Storms
Wednesday, August 30, 2017 6:50 AM

With south Texas still reeling from the impact of Hurricane Harvey, Oklahoma credit unions are moving to the next level of their response. The Cornerstone Oklahoma office, led by Oklahoma Credit Union Association President Nate Webb, is marshaling assistance for storm-affected credit unions, credit union employees, and thousands of others who have been displaced from their homes in south Texas.

"Many of the evacuees will be sent to temporary shelters in the Dallas area and will be in need of some very basic supplies," Webb says. "Oklahomans are well versed in supporting disaster victims, and it's why we are conducting a drive to collect essential items here in Oklahoma that can be transported to the appropriate Dallas shelters."

If you are willing to donate any of the items listed below, Webb and his team have established two Oklahoma collection points to gather supplies, which will then be taken to Dallas for distribution.

Collection Points:

Tulsa
Oklahoma Central CU
4956 South Peoria Avenue
Tulsa, OK 74105

Oklahoma City
Credit Union House
631 E. Hill St.
Oklahoma City, OK 73105

Needed Items:

New underwear
New socks
New warmups for men, women, children and infants
Pillows, pillow cases and blankets
Flip flops for showers
Towels and wash cloths
Toiletries/hygiene products
Baby formula and baby wipes, bottles, diapers
Graco Pack n' Plays for babies to sleep in

If you have any questions about this effort or other ways you can help, please contact Nate Webb at 405-445-1510 or nwebb@okcua.coop.
