The United Way Of Central Oklahoma May Tornado Relief Fund. Updates on the event

For Keith, this event and the May storms that led to it are deeply personal. "I
grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I've got lots of family and friends who
were directly affected," he says. "I know these folks and they're resilient, but
we're going to keep helping them any way we can. I'm proud to get together with
some others from around here who are just as committed as I am to supporting
"Once we got the news that the tornado had hit Toby's hometown, Miss Yearwood
and I told Toby we were at his service for whatever he chose to do," Brooks
says. "I am amazed at the human spirit the tornado victims have shown. I am
humbled by the giving of the volunteers. It is an honor to get to be a part of
this healing process."
