Unexpected Tornadoes — March 25th

We at Serve Moore were as caught off guard as many were by the sudden development of several small tornadoes in Central Oklahoma earlier tonight. Firstly and most importantly, our prayers are for all Oklahomans who have suffered as a result of severe weather tonight — the numerous homes affected by the storms and sadly the loss of life in Sand Springs.

We are communicating with the Cities of Moore and Oklahoma City emergency management departments and have offered help. The Serve Moore team is working on a volunteer plan for Thursday, March 26th that will likely include: tarping roofs, minor home repairs, and debris removal. We will be following up tonight with more detailed information for volunteers looking to help.

No matter where you find yourself in tonight's weather, there's something you can do. If you need help, ask us and we will do all we can to help you. If you want to give help by showing up to volunteer, we will share more info with you tonight and tomorrow. If you want to give help by donating, your donations will be used to directly assist those affected by this and any future disasters in Central Oklahoma. 

#RenewMoore with Sheds

One very important part of the recovery and renewal effort in our city has been replacing or creating storage for affected homeowners. Storage can be an afterthought in times of disaster but the reality is that more storage is needed following a disaster than before. 

We've heard from many homeowners in need of storage. Sometimes they are forced to pay a new monthly bill to keep a storage unit; sometimes they're moving back into a smaller home and need additional storage. No matter why, we want to help provide some long-term, cost effective storage for people affected by the storms.

Do I Qualify?

We have three general stipulations for homeowners who are looking to have sheds built by Serve Moore AND provided at no cost. My property was affected by the tornado, and:

  • My shed or storage was destroyed.
  • I have moved into a smaller home or a home with a smaller garage and have therefore lost my ability to store things. 
  • I am currently paying for a storage rental and could be relieved of that payment with a shed.
     

None Of The Above?

Would you like to have a shed but weren't affected by the tornado or don't fit into the situations above?  We would still love to have a conversation to see what we can do. If you are willing to pay for the materials necessary to build the shed, we would be happy to provide the volunteers to build it! This is all part of our vision to #RenewMoore!
