For those who want to help, 72 FSS is taking volunteers for the “Adopt-a-Family” program where folks can volunteer to have families stay with them. Contact the Emergency Family Assistance Center at 405-739-2747 or try them at their secondary number 405-736-9936 and provide them with your name, number of family members you can accommodate and the length of time you are willing to offer the assistance. Thank you for all your support!
In light of the devastating tornadoes that have hit the Oklahoma City area, last night, I tasked the Airman & Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) to stand up the Emergency Family Assistance Center (EFAC) 24/7 to ensure Tinker personnel and their families receive effective support during this most difficult time. If your personnel need immediate assistance with food, clothing or emergency financial assistance please contact the Tinker EFAC at (405) 739-2747.
Additionally, if anyone would like to “adopt” a Tinker family who has been directly affected by the tornadoes by offering temporary shelter in their home, please contact the EFAC and provide them with the volunteer’s name, the number of family members they can accommodate and the length of time they will be willing to offer the assistance. — STEVEN J.
