The American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma is encouraging people affected by the wildfires to take advantage of the numerous resource centers the organization offers.

Complete Coverage: Oklahoma Wildfires

There are two Red Cross Multi-Agency Resource Centers in central Oklahoma. One is in Glencoe at the United Methodist Church at 113 South Perry Avenue. It's open Wednesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Another resource center is located in Noble at 12 Points Baptist Church at 15601 East Etowah Road. Its hours are Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 7 p.m.

Volunteers at the resource centers assess the needs of those affected by the wildfires, and connect them with financial, insurance and mental health professionals.

The wildfires destroyed more than 300 homes across the state. The Red Cross says what it needs most now are monetary donations.
