OEC Foundation continues support of Meals on Wheels

The OEC Foundation, created in 1993, has a long history of supporting local organizations and families in OEC's service area through the Operation Round Up® program. Its support of Meals on Wheels of Norman dates back almost to the beginning of the Foundation — 1996 — and the board ensured that support would continue when it granted the organization $9,000 to serve nutritious meals to the ill, disabled and elderly across Cleveland County.

ORU Grant Provides Life-Saving Equipment

A June 2017 Operation Round Up® (ORU) grant to the Newcastle Fire Department (NFD) proved to be a life-saving decision when the department's fire fighters used the equipment to save a person's life following a vehicle accident. The $2,830 grant allowed the NFD to update its extrication equipment, meaning quicker and more efficient work when responding to vehicle accidents involving entrapment.
