Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by the recent tornadoes.
The Osage Nation Emergency Management Department is gathering information about Osage members affected in order to plan a relief effort, which will focus on the most urgent needs of these members.
Osage members in need of assistance are encouraged to call EMS Director, Bobby Tallchief, who is coordinating these efforts, at 918-287-5225 or 918-636-4578.
According to officials, items on the list in the May 21 announcement are no longer needed. However, cash donations are still needed. An account to help Osage members affected by the tornadoes has been established at the American Heritage Bank, which has branches in Pawhuska, Bartlesville and 16 other locations in Oklahoma. Visit the website ahb-ok.com for locations and bank hours. For those wishing to donate, the name of the account is: the Osage Relief Fund.
