Red Cross Responds to Tornadoes

1 May

You probably noticed Red Cross representatives out on the Square yesterday during Double Decker, collecting for the victims of the recent tornadoes. It was great to see so many people donating to the cause. There was another collection taking place at the fire station on Lamar Boulevard, and Kroger is busy collecting donations as well.

It feels good to know that when disaster strikes, the Oxford community quickly comes together to help out its neighbors. If you missed your chance to donate yesterday, you can still participate through the local Red Cross Chapter (contact info below), and restaurateurs are encouraged to reach out to see how they can help get warm meals into the hands of people who have been left without homes.
