Gov. Kevin Stitt announced a volunteer program that will connect Oklahomans with their community once health officials determine it is safe and appropriate to do so. It is a collaboration between Stitt and The Oklahoma State Department of Health. The program is called 'Ready. Help. Go.' It will provide a place for Oklahomans to help in future volunteer opportunities regarding the Coronavirus pandemic.
Stitt said to the news release: "Every Oklahoman can help from home by filling out the form. Our state is facing an unprecedented crisis, but the Oklahoma Standard is to step up when things get tough. Let’s be good neighbors during this trying time and start planning for recovery."
Justin Brown, secretary of Human Services and Early Childhood Initiatives said to the news release: "Our goal with Ready. Help. Go. is to help people to direct their energy into safe, appropriate volunteer opportunities to lift up their neighbors. The Department of Human Services has the right partners to connect volunteers with opportunities that fit their talents. Right now, we're asking Oklahomans to help us get ready by signing up from the safety of their home."
