            Oklahoma U. offers space for donations to tornado victims
Search and rescue turns to recovery and rebuilding, May 22, 2013, Moore, Oklahoma

MOORE, Okla. —

It's a problem one would imagine is a good one to have -- so many donated items coming in to help tornado ravaged Moore and Oklahoma City they don't have any place to put it all.

But actually, it's been a logistical nightmare, according to officials with the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, as well as government entities which truly appreciate the help, but don't know where to put everything nor how to best organize its distribution.

KRMG has learned that the University of Oklahoma has cleared about 100,000 square feet of space at the Lloyd Noble Center which can be used as a drop-off point for truckloads of donated items.

Local officials ask that people who want to make smaller donations take them to area churches and community organizations.

For those semi-trucks from around Oklahoma and out of state, they ask drivers to take I-35 to Highway 9 East, then proceed to Imhoff and follow the signs from there to the Lloyd Noble Center.
