Oklahoma City based nonprofit, Feed The Children, has been ranked number 20 on the Forbes 100 Largest U.S. Charities list. 

Feed The Children is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing food and essentials to children and families in need around the world.

Feed The Children has consistently been ranked as one of the largest international charities based in the United States, and is the only Oklahoma based non-profit to be included on the list this year.

OG&E crews back from East Coast

Oklahoma Gas and Electric recently announced that 60 employees are returning home after spending more than two weeks assisting with power restoration in the Northeast following Hurricane Sandy.

OG&E crews headed to Maryland to first assist Baltimore Gas and Electric near Baltimore.

After several days of restoration work there, they were released to assist harder-hit Public Service Electric and Gas in the Paramus, N.J., area.

While in New Jersey, OG&E crews spent six days restoring electricity to customers who had been without power for a week or more.

In Glen Rock, N.J., a borough of about 12,000 residents, Mayor John van Keuren wondered why he wasn’t seeing any utility trucks after the storm. When they did show up, he said, they were the trademark orange OG&E trucks.
