Helping Oklahoma recover
May 22, 2013
In response to the recent tornado that caused massive devastation in Oklahoma, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation is donating $500,000 to support relief efforts, including $150,000 to the American Red Cross and $100,000 to United Way of Central Oklahoma to assist with immediate needs and $250,000 to assist local and national organizations supporting longer term rebuilding.
“We are all working through the aftermath of the tornado that tore through our community yesterday,” said Tony Shinn, Oklahoma City Market president. “Today, we continue to work together to do our best to support our employees, customers and our communities.”
Bank of America’s donation to the American Red Cross supports the 2013 Spring Storms Fund, which will provide relief more broadly to needs across the region, as well as to efforts following the recent storms in North Texas.
