Crossroads Tornado Relief - May 21, 2013
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
By now I’m sure many of you have witnessed the devastating images from Moore, Oklahoma. If you have asked yourself how you can help and have a direct impact on the families then please continue reading this message.
I have been in contact with a local church called Crossroads. Mr. Samuel Walker is coordinating the relief efforts at the church as they are currently setting up a relief center. They are located within a mile of the devastating path of the tornado. Many residents have begun streaming in looking for shelter and help.
You can help by purchasing items directly through Walmart online. Set your ‘local Walmart’ to store 743. This address for store 743 is:

During checkout you will be asked who is picking up this order. Enter the following information in these fields:
First Name: CROSSROADS

We all know how it feels to be a victim of a natural disaster. Our fellow Americans came to our aid during our time of crisis especially the good folks in St. Tammany’s Parish in Louisiana who brought us the Train of Hope.
Now it's our turn to help pay it forward. Let’s show the residents of Moore, Oklahoma that Hoboken is standing strong for them.
