One team has been in contact with the Center for Children and Families, Inc in Norman, OK. The resource director has given them a list of items needed. They have been accepting donations for the past week and have a trailer filled with supplies. They also raised almost $700 and will be using that to purchase 28 $25 gift cards to Walmart for the Center to hand out to families as needed. They will be presenting a 4'x8' card signed by members of our community and will also have a lot of donations to deliver. They even said if other teams want to meet them there that morning, that would be great!
