After tornadoes devastated the Picher community, The News On 6 teamed up with the American Red Cross for the Neighbors in Need Tornado Relief Drive.  Thanks to your donations, we were able to present the Red Cross with a check for more than $10,000.

Tulsa's Red Cross CEO Mary Ogle accepted the donation from News On 6 anchor Terry Hood.  Ogle says the Red Cross is still providing those left homeless with basic needs.

"Right now we're feeding the families still and we're providing the bulk distribution items they need and getting them into a new place to live. So, everything we've done from May 10th on, this is to support that effort," said Mary Ogle with the Red Cross.

Ogle says 100% of your donations to The News On 6 Neighbors in Need Tornado Relief fund will go to the Red Cross.
