NORMAN — JourneyChurch.tv Norman Campus, 3801 Journey Parkway is a tornado relief headquarters and donation hub for Moore tornado victims.
The church began mobilizing its congregation via Facebook, Twitter and email immediately following Monday’s tornado, and the first supplies began arriving within 20 minutes of the word getting out.
The building has been open 24 hours a day since, allowing for an army of hundreds of volunteers to prepare and distribute truckload after truckload of supplies to disaster areas in Moore, Newcastle, Shawnee, Carney and many other communities affected by the May 19 and 20 storms. JourneyChurch has also been distributing food, water, toiletries and clean-up supplies to relief centers at the Moore Community Center, First Baptist Moore, the Salvation Army and the Police Command Center in Moore.
Semi-trucks, trailers and vans are arriving at the Journey Church campus in Norman from all over the country, loaded with supplies from other churches and organizations who’ve heard about the efforts at the church and wanted to contribute, as well as a Disaster Response Mobile Kitchen that arrived earlier this week. The kitchen came from Orlando, Fla., to set up in the heart of Moore and prepare 5,000 hot meals daily for victims, EMS workers and volunteers.
