Eagles providing aid to victims

Boone County — Local groups are doing legitimate work to help victims of a catastrophic tornado in Moore, Okla., while authorities are warning that scammers quickly began trying to take advantage of the tragedy.

Lebanon’s Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 2062 has joined other lodges and businesses to send one semi-trailer-load of relief supplies to Moore, and is gathering items for a second trip, leaving this Sunday.

Needed are gloves, boots, masks, toothbrushes and tooth paste, bottled water, cleansing wipes, diapers, baby formula, energy bars and energy drinks, dog food, cat food and kitty litter. No clothing is being accepted. Checks should be payable to “Oklahoma Relief — Red Cross,” said Beverly Johnson.

Checks must be payable to Oklahoma relief to ensure people there receive the benefit, she said.
