Community Support in Oklahoma City, OK From Emrick's Van & Storage

May 20, 2013 Tornado Relief


We volunteered trucks and men to get the donations to the front line. One of our owner-operators, Alex Yanto, took two truck-loads from News Channel 9 (CBS) to the local food bank.  We also worked with Crossings Community Church on two of their tornado projects. First, Emrick’s delivered over 1000 meals that the church prepared to three areas that were damaged. Secondly, Crossings church members filled two bobtails full of donations that we delivered to Moore, OK a few blocks from the damage.

We have given out around 200 boxes to those families that had a few things to salvage. Unfortunately, it began raining before most were given access to their homes to recover much.

Inner City School Christmas Outreach Program


Each Year Emrick’s Van & Storage partners with Crossing Community Church to “Serve our City” through the Christmas season with an Inner-City School Christmas Outreach Program! The annual Inner-City program benefits 1400 children and youth who attend one of our Inner-City schools. Emrick’s provides the transportation of 1400 Christmas backpacks to very happy children in the Oklahoma City Area.

Red Andrews Christmas Dinner


Emrick’s is proud to partner with The Red Andrews Christmas Dinner Foundation which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Emrick’s provides the year-round storage of the kitchen equipment, leftover toys and coats, miscellaneous items, and Santa’s Chair! We provide a trailer the week of the event to store the no perishable foods and Santa goodies before the event.

Red Andrews Christmas Dinner is an Oklahoma City Christmas Day tradition dating to 1947. The dinner provides warm meals and toys to thousands of citizens each year.

The event will take place every year on Dec. 25. Everyone attending will receive a warm meal consisting of turkey and all of the trimmings. Each child will have a photo taken with Santa and will receive a toy.
“Last year we fed approximately 7,000 people and gave away thousands of toys,” said Mary Blankenship Pointer in a news release. “The Red Andrews’ Christmas Dinner is our gift to the community, it is free and open to the public. People from all walks of life attend. It is heart-warming to see the community work together to provide this wonderful event.”
