On May 20, a two-mile-wide tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, claiming many lives and leaving behind a devastating trail of destruction. Plaza Towers Elementary School stood right in the path of the storm’s 320 km/h winds.
Hundreds of homes are damaged or destroyed as tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Illinois and Iowa.
CLWR’s partners are already on the ground, assessing the immediate and long-term needs of those affected by the tornadoes. Your gifts are needed to begin coordinating volunteers, rebuilding homes and offering spiritual and emotional care to those in need. Support will be provided through our partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and their disaster response efforts.
Join us and help provide the type of immediate and long-lasting support that is already underway in the affected regions.
You can also donate by phone (1.800.661.2597), online, by mail (send cheque to CLWR, 600-177 Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3B 0W5), or by making a designated offering at a Lutheran church in Canada. Please indicate you wish to donate to the “Tornado Response in the US.”
