Catholic Charities of Tulsa set up at the Multi-Agency Resource Center organized by Red Cross and will work with the Knights of Columbus and other volunteers to assist in recovery for the victims of the March tornados in Oklahoma.

We need your help! A family with four kids are in need for a houseful of furniture. They lost all of their furniture in the recent tornado disaster and are sleeping on pallets. They especially need 1 adult bed, 1-2 kid beds, 1-2 toddler beds, and a crib. They will also need a sofa, table, and chairs.

If you have any of the above items that you wish to donate, please contact Erick Bell at 918-508-7186 or ebell@cctulsa.org. Thank you.

This is just the beginning. There will be many more needs to fill. 700 homes were damaged statewide and 100 destroyed. In Sand Springs 40 to 50 homes were destroyed or damaged. In Tulsa, 20 to 30 homes were damaged. We would like to work with as many clients as possible with serious issues to help get them back on their feet.
