‘In Their Own Words: Oklahoma’

On the front lines of a massive cleanup effort, Habitat leaders and volunteers share their thoughts on rebuilding “Oklahoma strong.”

Ann Felton, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Central Oklahoma, is ready for the challenge: “We want to help as many people as we can.”

Linda Banta, executive director of Habitat of Cleveland County, sees great need everywhere. “Every time I look around at the devastation, it’s just unreal.”

Naomi Malts, a volunteer, feels blessed to help with the cleanup. It’s “the best feeling in the world,” she said, “knowing that you helped someone.”

Volunteer Tom Jong sees the good amid devastation: “It’s so heartwarming to see all the people pitching in and helping out.”
