OKLAHOMA CITY – A local energy foundation announced that it is donating $100,000 to help families in need.

The OG&E Energy Corp. Foundation is donating $100,000 to the Salvation Army’s Central Oklahoma Area Command to help with assistance following a challenging year.

“With the help from the OG&E Energy Corp. Foundation, The Salvation Army will be able to better serve Oklahomans in need 365 days a year.   Services provided by all non-profit organizations dramatically increased following the dramatic economic impact of the tornadoes earlier this year,” said Capt. Carlyle Gargis.   “I encourage you to please continue to remember your favorite charities this winter as the needs are greater than ever.”

Since 1986, OG&E’s Lend A Hand program helps Oklahomans with their utility bills through the Salvation Army’s Social Services Office.

In nearly three decades of the partnership, OG&E and its customers have contributed more than $2.7 million to the program.
