EDMOND—The Disaster Relief organization of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO) is involved in the response to the wildfires in the Guthrie area.
According to Dave Karr, deployment coordinator for the BGCO, volunteers are preparing hundreds of meals today for relief organizations to feed to first responders and others. Volunteer chaplains and damage assessment volunteers also have been at work.
“When our neighbors are in need, we are here to serve,” said Karr.
The BGCO disaster relief organization has some 5,500-plus trained volunteers, and were active in the tornado response in Quapaw in April. For more information about the BGCO’s disaster relief, or to make a tax-deductible donation, visit www.okdisasterhelp.com.
