We at Edmond Hyundai have seen what our friends and family at Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge have done by creating and seeding the Shelter Oklahoma Schools with $100,000.00, and cannot sit by without participating. We were further moved by Kendrick Perkins’ immediate contribution of $25,000.00. This outpouring of generosity is what makes Oklahoma and its citizens amazing and why we feel so fortunate to be a part of the community at large.
We are saddened by what occurred to each and every one of the victims, their families, their friends, and each and every person and entity that has been affected by the events of May 20, 2013. As a result, we have decided to contribute $10,000.00 to the Shelter Oklahoma Schools Fund to help in the effort to build, resurrect, and/or fortify shelters and safe houses in and around schools and communities throughout Oklahoma.
This is a problem that simply must be addressed, and we cannot sit by and wait for others to do what needs to be done. Our children are our priority. We always say it, but sometimes we fail to act accordingly. This is an opportunity to help generations of Oklahoma children not just now, but for the foreseeable future. It cannot be stressed enough, we must protect our children.
We think this is a wonderful opportunity for each and every resident and business in Oklahoma to accomplish a goal that can only be done through a joint effort.
