Oklahoma VOAD Disaster Information
Many states get hit frequently with tornadoes and other natural catastrophes, but as Oklahomans know Oklahoma gets more than its fair share. Oklahoma is ranked No. 1 in tornado disasters and No. 3 for flooding, according to a database of presidential disaster declarations handled by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Oklahoma is a wonderful place to live, with amazing people that come together in times of disaster.
When disaster strikes, the best way to support survivors of disaster in Oklahoma remains donating financial contributions to reputable voluntary organizations. Cash donations allow nonprofit organizations to purchase what disaster survivors need. Buying from local businesses also helps the economy recover. Donations of used clothing and miscellaneous household items must be sorted, warehoused, transported and distributed, which diverts resources from agencies that are coordinating distribution of identified needs.
