By Justin Schecker. CREATED May 22, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - KGUN 9 On Your Side's partnership with the Southern Arizona Red Cross to raise money for Oklahoma relief efforts continues today.

The community of Moore, Oklahoma has been through this before in 1999 and 2003. The people there have pledged to rebuild again, but they need help and that's where the Red Cross steps in. 

"Red Cross' partnership with KGUN 9 is a wonderful partnership," Red Cross of Southern Arizona CEO Richard White said. "Your viewers are hearing from us what the needs are for the families in Oklahoma."

You can make a donation throughout the day. The number to call is (520)318-6740.

KGUN 9 On Your Side's special phone bank will be up and running this evening from 5-7pm.
"Families are counting on the Red Cross for support, sheltering, meals, clothing, mental health, nursing care and most of all, hope," White said.
You can also help out by texting "red Cross" to 9-0-9-9-9 to make an automatic $10 donation.
