couple of OEC Foundation grants are making a big impact in the day-to-day lives of two area students with disabilities. “The grants, while vastly different in scope, will help equip these teens with tools


they need to overcome some of the barriers and obstacles they face every day,” said Lloyd Gramling, president of the OEC Foundation board. “The gifts truly will make a direct and lasting impact on their quality of life.” The grants, funded by OEC members who voluntarily round-up their


monthly electric bills through the co-op’s Operation Round Up® (ORU) program, were approved at a meeting on May 1. The largest grant, for up to $10,000, will be used to purchase a stand-up


wheelchair and help pay for intensive rehabilitation treatment in Florida for a Noble High School teen who was paralyzed in an ATV accident. Members of NHS’s student council held an assortment of fundraising activities during SHOUT Week (Students Helping Others United Together) in the spring to raise money for this effort. A 16-year-old autistic student who cannot speak will receive $700


to purchase a device and software that makes it possible for him to communicate orally rather than by using hand and head gestures. Not only will it enrich the communication he has with his friends and family, his teachers believe it will help him be more successful in the classroom. In addition to the aforementioned grants, $13,600 collectively was


awarded to four organizations and eight individuals/families. The grants primarily will fund food programs in Norman and Purcell, protective firefighting gear for Slaughterville’s volunteer firefighters, and vision care for people in Cleveland and McClain counties. The OEC Foundation board, which administers ORU funds and


awards Foundation grants, will meet on June 12 to consider applications for funding. Applications are due by June 6. Individuals living in and organizations serving the OEC service area are eligible to apply. For more information about ORU or to obtain an application visit OEC’s Web site, www.okcoop.org, or call 405-217-6710.
