Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Goodwill Industries Partner to Help Oklahoma Tornado Victims. - Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana in Shreveport, Louisiana partnered with local musician, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, YEARONE and the Hot Rodders Children’s Charity this past weekend to conduct a fundraising/donation effort to help the tornado victims in Oklahoma.  The "We Can Help Moore” donation drive collected three eighteen-wheeler trucks full of clothing and other items to help the people of Moore, Oklahoma.  Those trucks will be on the road to Oklahoma this week.  Shepherd is also heading to Oklahoma to hold a big benefit concert on June 7th.  All proceeds from the concert will go towards the tornado victims' relief efforts.

We received so many donations from other Goodwill’s during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina,” says Romney Guy, Chief Operating Officer for Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana.  "We wanted to "pay it forward” and help the people of Oklahoma as they put their lives back together again.”
