Tornado survivors get homes
MOORE — Two Oklahoma families, homeless since the 2013 May tornado, received keys to new homes during ribbon-cutting ceremonies Tuesday and Wednesday.
The homes for the Baker family and the Tinnin family were constructed with donated funds by a coalition of organizations led by the international relief organization Convoy of Hope, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City’s Catholic Charities affiliate. The project was part of the Oklahoma Disaster Recover Project, a collaborative effort by nonprofit agencies working within the Moore community.
“We have been honored to work in this community, and we count it a privilege to play a part in the restoration of Moore,” said Hal Donaldson, president and co-founder of Convoy of Hope.
