At 3:01 pm CT on May 20, a massive F-4 tornado decimated the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, OK. Scores of severe injuries and deaths have been reported, and intense work is under way to find and rescue those trapped in the rubble.]
The Humanist Crisis Response program of Foundation Beyond Belief has opened a donation drive in response to this disaster. Their staff worked through the night to assess the disaster situation and the relief organizations responding. This morning they have selected Operation USA and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to receive donations. These organizations were chosen for their long records of outstanding work, their high ratings and transparency, and their current direct work in the disaster zone addressing the primary needs of food, shelter, and medical aid.
Donations will be forwarded continuously during the emergency period. FBB retains no portion of donations. All donations to and through Foundation Beyond Belief are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
