CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead is calling on state residents to join an effort to raise money to support victims of the recent tornado that hit Moore, Okla.

Mead said Thursday that Wyoming residents Foster and Lynn Friess have committed to donate $1 million to the relief effort. They’re challenging all 50 state governors to raise a matching million dollars by raising $20,000 from citizens in their state.

Mead says he and his wife First Lady Carol Mead appreciate the couple’s generosity. He says he’s asking people from around Wyoming to help the citizens of Oklahoma start to rebuild their lives.

The National Christian Foundation, working with the Salvation Army and the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City, has agreed to accept donations and deliver them to Moore.
