Organizers searching for place to honor Oklahomans who died from coronavirus

VIDEO: Project underway to honor Oklahomans who've died from coronavirus

TULSA, Okla. — A project honoring the lives of Oklahomans who died from the coronavirus is expanding, and needs a new temporary home.

The Oklahoma Covid-19 Remembrance Project has 1700+ white crosses, each representing a life lost from COVID. In October, they were displayed in a man’s lawn. But organizers are trying to find a new host.

As the death toll rises, so does the project. They are working on more crosses right now for the hundreds of lives lost in November.

Organizers are trying to find a yard, church, business, or park, to display the crosses. They’re hoping to find a space in South Tulsa or Broken Arrow, with plenty of foot traffic.

The project is a way for people to grieve the individuals lost to COVID, and to give a full visual of the impact of the virus on our state.

If you’d like to donate, volunteer, or offer a new space for the project, visit the GoFundme page.

You can also email jdelpilar@fox23 to forward the message to organizers.
