ONEOK announced on Thursday that it, along with the ONEOK Foundation, will contribute a total of $1 million for eastern Oklahoma disaster and flood relief efforts.
Included is an immediate donation of $500,000 to the American Red Cross.
The remaining funds will be available to meet the needs of local communities as cleanup efforts continue and to match contributions made by employees, retirees and members of the company’s board of directors to agencies assisting with flood relief efforts including the Tulsa Community Foundation, Tulsa Area United Way Disaster Relief Fund and ONEOK’s employee-led charitable organization that helps its employees in times of personal crisis.
“The recent storms, heavy rains and flooding have impacted our employees, our neighbors and the eastern Oklahoma community,” said Terry K. Spencer, ONEOK president and CEO.
“Many have sustained significant damage to their homes or have been displaced. Many families in eastern Oklahoma communities will be facing challenges during the cleanup and restoration process. Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone impacted by the effects of these powerful storms and flooding.”
