We have seen an overwhelming response from Oklahomans wanting to help their neighbors. For those of you looking to make contributions to the victims of the Oklahoma wildfires this weekend, here's a list of places you can go:
The Red Cross has set up Shelter at the south location of Sand Springs United Methodist Church. It is located at 101 W. 38th in Sand Springs. Donations of bottled water, Gatorade, pre-packaged food and snacks can be accepted there.
There is also shelter that has been set up at the church's main location at 4th &Main in Downtown Sand Springs. They are taking donations of clothing, toiletries, water, paper goods,
