OKLAHOMA CITY – Four Oklahoma schools will be getting new storm shelters through the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

The foundation announced $800,000 in grants will be given to four schools across the state.

That money will be used to build storm shelters in Calumet, Drummond, Western Heights and Moore.

It’s all part of the foundation’s “Shelter Oklahoma Schools Endowment,” which was set up after the May tornadoes.

Calumet and Drummound Public Schools will receive their grants Monday, which is $100,000 each.

The presentation for Western Heights happens a week from Monday.

Moore will be the last to receive the money, which will head to the district on Dec. 9.
