Hi, Donations are still being accepted. We have been in contact with several OSO members that need our help. These people have families to support. They have lost their sources of income due to the businesses they work for have been completely destroyed. Just because we are not seeing the devastation on TV every second like we were 2 weeks ago, these OSO members need our help now and probably will for some time.
There have been many members that have been very generous in helping support this cause. THANK YOU!
Very few of them have stepped up to the plate.

Lube, I did Red Cross. But I bet the OSO fund has a lot less administrative overhead !!

So are you guys going to donate the rest of the fund to another charity or are there other OSO hurricane members in need?
