Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, – For many years, Feed the Children has been a forerunner in responding quickly and efficiently to disasters. We are continually prepared to help during hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, even war and conflict — anything that leaves children and their families in a state of devastation.
Currently, we are monitoring the damage from Hurricane Patricia – the strongest at sea hurricane on record. Feed the Children is making plans to respond as needed for both Mexico and the United States, although at this time it looks like most of the damage will be in Texas due to flooding.
Feed the Children is an organization on which communities rely during their most difficult times. Through hundreds of shipments of relief items to our international offices and partner agencies, we have been able to provide assistance to those hardest hit during past disasters.
By partnering with Feed the Children and making a financial contribution to support disaster relief for events like Hurricane Patricia, one can be assured that together, we are making a difference.
To receive time-sensitive updates on potential disaster relief, text DISASTER to 51555 or find us on our various social media platforms.
