 Losses from these storms are estimated to reach upwards of $2 billion. Many of the short-term needs of the people affected by the tornadoes have already been met; the goal of Rock for Oklahoma is to help them with long-term issues and problems, such as regaining livelihoods. All of the proceeds will be dispersed to central Oklahoma community organizations and charities, via local charities.


United Way of Central Oklahoma advises that monetary donations are the best way to assist the recovery efforts.

The organization has activated its disaster relief fund effective Monday, May 20, 2013, so individuals may contribute online, via credit card by phone, and by mail, specifically to the May tornadoes relief and recovery efforts. If you have trouble with donating online, there are two alternative ways to give.

1. Give online to the May Tornadoes Relief Fund located on our home page at If you are having trouble donating online, there are two other ways to give:

2. Give by credit card - call 405-523-3598, 405-523-3597, or our main number: 405-236-8441.

3. Give by mailing a check to United Way of Central Oklahoma, P.O. Box 837, Oklahoma City, OK 73101 with notation for May Tornadoes Relief.

Fund dollars will be distributed without administrative fees to United Way Partner Agencies working on the tornado relief efforts. Agencies must clearly prove services provided and demonstrate need for financial support. Organizations that receive United Way disaster fund assistance will be evaluated and held strictly accountable. As our Partner Agencies work together to meet the immediate needs in the recovery efforts, the May Tornado Relief Fund will serve not only immediate needs, but intermediate, and long-term care for years to come.

"We couldn't be more proud to lend a hand to our home state. We were all devastated by what happened there....we have family and friends that were affected by the tornados....this is the least we could do."

      Jared Followill (Kings of Leon)

Shakespeare said ‘It is not enough to help the needy up, but to support them after’ and in our small way we are trying to not just be here at the moment of immediate need, but to stay and help with the rebuilding. After all, this is our home and they are us and we are them.”

       Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips)
