First off let us just say that we at Shopaholla truly appreciate all the kind words and support as we watched our town and the people we love and care about walk through such a devastating event.
An update on our community:
We have been able to partner with Serve Moore to help in the clean up and serving of those who were effected. Our founder, Andrew Johnson, and his wife, Melissa, were able to help clean up debris and fallen trees in neighborhoods, power-wash homes and get supplies to those that were affected. Thanks for your patience in our support response time and project timelines, it means a lot to us!
Our company was also able to partner with another local company, aequ, to create an application that helps to organize the volunteer effort. The application takes the needs of those affected in Moore and quickly pairs them with supplies and people that ready to serve. The application dubbed “Pairs” has been used to serve thousands to date!
There are still ways you can help our community:
The most immediate needs are being met through local law enforcement, churches, and other organizations. There have been several donations, but more is needed. The easiest way to help is through prayer for our community and those who have lost loved ones if you are willing. The next will be through donating to one of the following charities that are on the ground helping.
