contributions were in place to help those aff ected by the tornadoes long before the twister struck,” said Vivian Gibson, president of the OEC Foundation board. “T is helped forge a network that was prepared to respond in the aftermath, and played a vital role in giving immediate comfort and hope to those whose lives were shattered.” T is outpouring of support is a classic example of how OEC and its members exemplify the cooperative principle of “concern for community." And not just during times of crisis, but year-round. For more than two decades. Following the disaster, the Foundation’s offi cers met to determine


additional ways in which to help families in Moore recover. As it did following the Murrah Bombing in 1995 and after the May 3, 1999, tornado, the board appropriated money to help the families who lost loved ones. “T e unexpected fi nancial burden on top of the sudden loss of a


child or loved one is more than most of us can imagine having to bear. Our hope is to alleviate stress and show compassion on behalf of OEC members,” said Gibson of the board’s decision to grant each victim’s family $1,000 to help with funeral costs or associated expenses. Additional action is likely when the board meets on May 30. Look in the June issue of the OEC News for a report.
