Springfield, Mo. (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
The first of Convoy of Hope’s disaster response vehicles arrived in Moore, Okla., today. After yesterday’s deadly tornado, a point of distribution is now being staged where emergency food, water and relief supplies will be provided to survivors.
“What we’re doing now is coordinating with partners and assessing where we will be most beneficial in the recovery process,” says Paul Coroleuski, field services director. “We’ve got three tractor-trailers full of water, food and cleaning supplies ready for distribution.”
Along with the tractor-trailers, Convoy of Hope deployed its disaster response mobile command center, a box truck and debris removal equipment. The organization will continue to coordinate additional loads of relief supplies and the deployment of more team members in the coming days.
