Prayers - and help - for Oklahoma

Prayers for Oklahoma

Imagine being without a home, and in a shelter.  Now imagine that the food they served could cause your child to experience anaphylaxis.  You'd survive the tornado, only to be killed by a sandwich.  Please join us in supporting the Oklahoma Food Allergy Support Group in providing allergy-friendly foods to food banks in Moore, OK and the surrounding area.  An easy way to help - without even leaving your living room for the post office - is to go to Amazon.com and order items to be shipped directly to Oklahoma.  While anything easy-to-prepare would be appreciated, some suggestions:

Sunbutter - sunflower seed butter

Gluten and/or dairy free crackers, such as Crunchmaster or Glutino

Enjoy Life Foods products -- including Sunbutter bars and Individually Wrapped Cookies 

(Note: By clicking through any of these links,  Amazon will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Kids with Food Allergies Foundation, and help fund KFA's Disaster Support Team.)

Donations can be sent to:

The Cherokee Hills Church of Christ
6724 NW 63
Oklahoma City, OK  73132
Attn: Becky Matlack and Oklahoma Food Allergy Support Group

PHONE: 405-305-3009

Email: tessasmomy (at) yahoo (dot) com
or cami62 (at) sbcglobal (dot) net

You can also go to Peanut Free Planet, and place an order.  They will cover the SHIPPING of your donation and see that it gets to the OKLAHOMA REGIONAL FOOD BANK.  You may also DONATE $ to purchase products to fill in the gaps of other donations via a gift certificate.  To order or donate:

  • Choose the item(s) you wish to donate  
                      15252 Stony Creek Way, Noblesville, IN 

and choose IN STORE PICKUP and put ‘OKLAHOMA” in the comments section.
All donations will be shipped THURSDAY MORNING. Please help to get the word out by copying and pasting this portion on your FB page.

Our love and prayers are being sent to Oklahoma.  
When sorrowful, be steadfast,
and in crushing misfortune be patient;
For in fire gold and silver are tested,
and worthy people in the crucible of humiliation.
Trust God and God will help you; trust in him, and he will direct your way.

 Sirach 2: 4-6
