The tornado that hit Moore, OK on May 20, 2013 took 24 lives, including 7 elementary students. Please help us finalize the Plaza Towers Elementary Memorial by making a donation.
One year later, an appropriate and timeless memorial is being constructed in conjunction with the rebuild of Plaza Towers Elementary School. The memorial will honor the seven children who died and pay tribute to the heroic actions of teachers, administrators, family members, emergency responders and volunteers from the Moore community.
Located at the new Plaza Towers Elementary School (on the same site as the previous school), the memorial will be dedicated in August to coincide with the new school year. It will serve as a reminder of what was lost on May 20th, but also as a beacon of hope for the many kids who will attend Plaza Towers now and in the future…that Oklahoman’s are resilient and persevere in the face of adversity. While the seven children will never be forgotten, their memorial will welcome students into a bright future every time they enter school.
While construction of the memorial will proceed in conjunction with the new elementary school, funding is completely reliant on private donations. You can help by donating via this website. All funding is administered by the Moore Public Schools Foundation a 501 (c)(3).
Whether you’re a child contributing a dollar, or a corporation willing to give much more, there is no minimum or maximum giving level.
Please join this historic effort to memorialize the loss of seven precious lives…and point future kids to a bright future.
The design preserves the generous space required for large numbers of children and adults moving back and forth from the school but also incorporates elements that will enhance the daily use of the space for all.
Special thanks to The Moore Public School System, Republic Bank & Trust, Preston and Nikki McCurtain, Levant Technologies and Trifecta Communications for their efforts in orchestrating this important initiative.
