Reaching Out to Oklahoma Tornado Victims
PAEA would like to express its heartfelt sympathy for the residents of Oklahoma who were affected by Monday’s devastating tornado, particularly those in the hard-hit town of Moore, who lost loved ones and saw their homes destroyed. PAEA member programs in Oklahoma, fortunately, were not directly impacted by the tornado, but grieve for others in their state who were and are prepared to help in any way they can.
