OPERATION Round Up


Hundreds of children, families benefi t from ORU grants this holiday season


t T e OEC Foundation, Inc. board


of directors embraced the spirit of the season during its November meeting. T e nine-member board giſt ed $36,500 in grants to local organizations that will in turn ensure a blessed Christmas for hundreds of children and families. T e Citizens Advisory Board of


Cleveland County Child Welfare Unit, Inc. is expecting 800 to 850 children to take part in its Secret Santa program this year – up from 750 children in 2013. T e program partners with the Department of Human Services to help provide a Christmas for all of the children in the Cleveland County foster care program. “Wish lists are gathered from


the children and given to volunteer community shoppers,” said Jaci Williams, Citizen’s Advisory Board treasurer. “About a week before Christmas, the giſt s are distributed and delivered so Christmas morning will bring smiles to these children’s faces and send a little warmth and hope into their hearts.” T e foundation also approved


grants to provide Christmas giſt s for foster children in Caddo, Grady and McClain counties.

Christmas received $2,000 to provide Christmas meals for low-income families. T e program also provides a Christmas meal for the elderly, handicapped and other challenged individuals. “We are always grateful for


these organizations that provide a meaningful Christmas for those who may not otherwise have one,” said Lloyd Gramling, OEC Foundation, Inc. board president. “T ey can reach places of the community we cannot, and it makes OEC members’ donated dollars go even further.” Grants like these are made


possible because of members who choose to ‘round up’ their monthly electric bills to the nearest dollar – an average of $6 per year. In addition to grants given


to organizations for Christmas programs, $10,000 was given to Veterans Corner for fi nancial and medical assistance of veterans. T e Maguire Community Foundation Burn Closet also received a $10,000 grant for replacement household items and other assistance to families who lose their homes to fi re or other mishap. A few individuals were granted assistance with eye glasses


and dentures, as well. Applications returned by Dec. 4


will be considered at a meeting on Dec. 11. Forms – organizational and individual – are available at http://bit. ly/oec-oru. If you have questions about the


program or application process, call Tory Tedder-Loffl and at 405-217-6726.
