I just got off the phone with an employee at First Baptist Church in Moore, which is serving as a command post for services and supplies. She said they would be happy to accept any monetary donations, as well as donations of any unopened toiletry or cosmetic products. So anything from toothpaste to deodorant to shampoo to makeup... would be something they could distribute to the victims being served. When I mentioned makeup, the lady I was speaking with said, "I hadn't thought about that- but I'd imagine that would be a great help!" :)
Here's the address to send to:
First Baptist Church of Moore
Tornado Relief Donation
301 NE 27th St.
Moore, OK 73160
Thanks so much for taking time to read this post, and I hope we can all do our part helping those who have lost everything. When you lose your home, you lose that sense of normalcy in your life. I think toiletries and beauty items could at least help restore that regular routine. I know the tornado victims are dealing with far greater losses than the contents of their bathroom cabinets and makeup drawers, but I figure it'd be nice to cover that for them-- as they're busy handling more personal matters.
A big thank you to my inspiration to help-- twitter follower @neighohmy who packed up a makeup bag for one of her students who was impacted by the tornado. Such a nice way to lend a hand!
