Storm Shelter raffle in Tornado Alley to benefit Family Care Center

Raffle tickets are available now for a precast 6’ X 8’ storm shelter installed in western Oklahoma.  Delivery and installation is free within a 100 mile radius of Elk City, Oklahoma.

Why a raffle?

The raffle raises funds for the Western Oklahoma Family Care Center.  The center services people in need in Beckham, Custer, Roger Mills, and Washita Counties.  Services include help with bills, food, clothing, and even medical and dental care for those who cannot afford insurance.

In addition to the tangible services that most people come in search of, are those intangible services such as mentoring and counseling and helping people step out of poverty into a self-sustaining status and eventually into being a contributor to our community.  The WOFCC wants to do more than just help with immediate needs.  The center was to be a helping hand in leading people from poverty to abundance so those who are helped may one day help others.

That takes a constant stream of income as there are many in need of help and the number is growing.  That brings us to the raffle.  Tickets are $20 each and the drawing will be held as soon as the last ticket is sold.  To purchase tickets in Elk City, just call the WOFCC at (580) 225-5500.  To purchase tickets in Burns Flat, contact the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at (580) 562-4706.

Tickets are going fast so purchase yours soon and know that win or lose you have helped your neighbors.
