The Sand Springs Care Closet is open and doing their part to help flood victims this week.

The closet, which is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday this week at 3410 S. 113th W. Avenue, is taking donations of necessities including underwear, socks, Pull-Ups, diapers, wipes, deodorant, shampoo, soap and more. They’re also having a toy drive for children affected by the flood.

Katie Acuna, who opened the Sand Springs Care Closet in 2017, said they had families come Friday, May 24, 13 families come to get clothes or other items Saturday, May 25, and they’ve had a steady fl ow of people come the week of May 27 as well.

“Families need toiletries,” Acuna said. “Some are requesting toys…some are staying in hotels without toys.”

She said they’re partnering with Sand Springs Community Services to collect and distribute items to those in need.
