Donations For The Spirit Of Oklahoma
This weekend marks the 20th anniversary of a day we will never forget: the 9/11 attacks.
Shortly after, the good folks in Oklahoma opened their hearts and their wallets and gave a brand-new heavy rescue truck to New York City to replace one that was destroyed. That Spirit of Oklahoma Truck is now back in Oklahoma, but it was a long road to get here.
The department is still collecting donations of money, parts, and expertise with the goal to at least have the Spirit roadworthy by September 11.
GoFundMe For Woman Who Fled Afghanistan To Oklahoma
A woman and her husband left everything in Afghanistan for the safety of their daughter. They made it all the way to a refugee camp in Texas before having to separate because he isn't a U.S citizen.
Now Kristy Brod is in Oklahoma starting over with their 2-year-old daughter while he goes through the immigration process.
Brod is passionate about teaching and hopes to find a job soon. Her aunt has set up a donation page on Facebook to help them get back on their feet.
