A Flood Resource Reception Center will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Sunday, June 16, at 105 E. Ray Fine Blvd., in Roland.
Sponsored by the Red Cross and Oklahoma Voluntary Organizations in Active Disaster, or VOAD, the Resource Reception Center is intended for Sequoyah County residents who have been impacted by the recent floods.
MaryLynn Lufkin, Director of Catholic Charities Outreach and Disaster Relief for Eastern Oklahoma, said the center is to assist the people who are impacted by the floods in their recovery.
“We’re just reaching out to the Moffett community to help in their recovery and help them with questions,” Lufkin said.
Several disaster relief organizations will be on hand with information and resources, such as the Red Cross, Oklahoma VOAD, Salvation Army and Catholic Charities.
Lufkin said these agencies can assist flood victims with the FEMA application process and other immediate needs the disaster survivors might have.
“We can help walk them through the FEMA process, and help them navigate through that,” Lufkin explained.
Some cleaning supplies and hygiene kits may also be available.
“It’s just a way for us to reach out and help them with what can happen to move forward in their recovery,” Lufkin added. “It’s rough; some of these folks have lost everything.
“We can lend a hand, lend an ear and just comfort them.”
