A center named the Multi-Agency Resource Center will be a "one-stop-shop" for services from the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Oklahoma Insurance Commission, OK Housing and Finance, Legal Aid, Grand Lake Mental Health, Quapaw Tribe and other services.

A mobile tetanus clinic will be patrolling the city limits from 8:30 a.m. to noon offering tetanus immunizations to anyone wanting one. The tetanus clinic will be operated by the Ottawa County Health Department and Linda Davis, RN, of the Northeastern Tribal Clinic.

A "lost and found" will be established at the Quapaw City Hall at 410 Main where residents can claim items during regular business hours.

Donations are also being collected to help the victims. The First State Bank of Commerce has established the "Quapaw Citizen Relief Fund" to help those affected. Donations will be accepted at at 101 N. Mickey Mantle. A committee will be determined to administer the funds.

The Quapaw High School senior class has made a pledge to use funds they had intended to spend on a senior trip to donate to victim relief.

Donations can also be made at 419 Kentucky to the "Loaves and Fishes" food bank operated by the First Baptist Church of Quapaw.
