How You Can Help Victims of the Oklahoma Tornado
On Monday, May 20, a EF4 rated tornado struck the town of Moore, Oklahoma, leaving 24 dead and hundreds homeless. Volunteers and donations will be needed in the coming months to help with disaster relief, and KFOR-TV has also put together a list of organizations assisting with the relief efforts here. Below you will find a video of a woman reunited with her dog who was lost in the storm. Even amidst great tragedy, there is hope, and our community can do great things to help support those suffering from this disaster.
Move Out, Pitch In!
Every year, WSU encourages students moving out of their dorms and apartments to donate unwanted goods to local organizations rather than throwing these items out. Donating your unwanted clothing, electronics, food, and other items helps local nonprofits thrive! Donation containers are available throughout Pullman at a variety of locations May 1-June 2. Please do not put trash in the donation containers! For more information and donation locations, click here.
