Oklahoma relief drop-off points in Cherokee

In the wake of the storms that passed through Oklahoma, there may be Chickasaw, Absentee Shawnee, Potawatomi, along with other tribes, who have been directly affected.  Many have asked how they might be able to assist with providing relief for the storm victims and first responders.

The EBCI Emergency Management program and the EBCI Executive office will be conducting a donation drive for the following items: bottled water, diapers, formula, non-perishable food items, Gatorade, first aid supplies, blankets and hygiene products.

Please make monetary donations by check to EBCI Emergency Management.  The EM program will send one check comprised of all monetary donations to the Red Cross.

The drop-off points are as follows: Council House, Tsali Manor, Boys Club Lobby, EBCI Health & Medical Lobby, and the Shawn Blanton Emergency Operations Center.  The deadline is June 7 for all donations.

If your department is interested in conducting a donation drive, please contact Emergency Management 554-6434 554-6433.
