American Baptist Respond to
Tornado Victims Oklahoma
Within hours of the time when a massive tornado tore through Moore, Okla., and surrounding suburbs of Oklahoma City on Monday, May 21st, damaging homes, businesses and elementary schools, American Baptists release $5,000 in One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) domestic emergency disaster-relief funds for initial assistance to those in need. More funds will follow as specific needs are noted. Since the OGHS collection raises funds ahead of time, help can be sent immediately without waiting for churches to respond to a special appeal. This is why we seek generous support of the OGHS each June, to provide immediate help year-round.
