NBA.com has reported that the Memphis Grizzlies and the American Red Cross are teaming up to to aid the tornado victims of Oklahoma.

The two will collect donations at the doors of the FedExForum during games three and four, and all donations collected over that time will be matched by Tony Allen.

“Having attended college in Oklahoma, I am saddened to see what the state is going through after the devastating tornadoes,” said Allen. “My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families that have been affected. I am glad to help in any way that I can, and encourage everyone to do their part and help the victims in Oklahoma in any way possible.”

You can donate to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund here, and the organization also suggests giving blood at your local hospital or blood bank.

If you want to send a $10 donation to the Disaster Relief fund via text message, you can do so by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999.

You can find a detailed list of ways you can help here, per NBC News.

We also encourage you to remember that should you not be able to donate financially, prayers are always free.
