Shepards House at 323 S. Choctaw will accept donations and supplies for tornado victims Monday, June 3 and Tuesday, June 4.

Monetary donations for storm cleanup can be taken to the El Reno Municipal Building at 101 N. Choctaw. Checks can be made out to "City of El Reno."

The city says it will pick up tree limbs and storm debris, but warns it will be a slow process. People should separate tree limbs from trash and place them at the curb. Residents can also haul their tree limbs to the southwest corner of Country Club and Foreman.

Residents are asked not to call in their addresses.
