Radio stations in Ponca City, Okla., including Team Radio’s KPNC-FM and KLOR-FM, raised $27,000 for the American Red Cross. Station owner Bill Coleman said a local girls dance group "emptied their checking account" to bring $1,100 to the stations’ donation "drive through," which received a total $11,000 in 11 hours. KPNC-FM and KLOR-FM promoted the generosity at Roosevelt Elementary, where students unanimously voted to spend their field trip and its $1,400 budget to purchase relief supplies. Coleman noted the town of 25,000 sent at least $27,000 and four truckloads of goods to Moore.
