Due to the grand scale devastation and loss caused by the May tornadoes, the Salvation Army expects increased requests for all types of financial and material assistance, not only in the next few months, but also through the holidays and into the new year.
Bell explained to everyone that any amount of money goes a long way.
“No donation is too small. For instance, a $10 donation feeds a disaster survivor for one day. A $30 donation provides one food box containing food for a family of four, or one household cleanup kit containing brooms, mops, buckets and other cleaning supplies,” she said.
Trawick raised $764 in donations for the Oklahoma Tornado Relief fund.
“Not bad for an 88-year-old man,” said Trawick as he looked upon the final tally of donations with pride.
Although the total number of donations exceeded his expectations, Trawick’s fundraising days are far from over. He plans to contact local and national community leaders in an effort to accumulate more financial support for the Oklahoma Tornado Relief fund.
