City Pulse

By Sarabeth Blum

The massive tornado that tore through Oklahoma City, OK last Monday killed at least 24 people – nine of whom were children – and left hundreds more injured and homeless. Thanks to the combined efforts of Fashion Delivers Charitable Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.), Inc., brands of the fashion, home, and children’s industries are stepping forward to donate new clothing, hygiene and furnishing products to the tornado victims in the hardest hit areas of Oklahoma City.

We would like to sincerely thank those who have already made their initial donations to the Oklahoma Tornado relief efforts:

Thus far, clothing items have been donated by Aéropostale, BOBS from Skechers, Doneger Group, For Bare Feet, Fruit of the Loom, Free People, Gerber Childrenswear, JC’S Closet, Jones Group, KidCuteTure, Lacoste, One Stop Kid Shop, Parigi Group, Perry Ellis, Rachel Roy, ROAM, and Submarine Swimsuits.

Personal hygiene and food products have been donated by Angelwish and The Vitamin Shoppe; furnishings have been donated by Delta Childrens, Exxel and Newell Rubbermaid.

Thank you all for bringing hope and help to the Oklahoma families left hurt, homeless, and in need.

If you would like to donate new product or money to help Fashion Delivers and K.I.D.S. with the
tornado recovery efforts, please visit either website or call: http://www.fashiondelivers.org, 646-786-
2680 or http://www.kidsdonations.org, 212-279-5493.
