· Devon Energy today announced it has made an initial commitment of $2.5 million toward relief efforts for the recent Oklahoma tornadoes. Devon will assess related needs in the future and determine if additional contributions are warranted.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of these tragic storms,” said Devon President and Chief Executive Officer John Richels. “We are all saddened by the devastation, and as fellow Oklahomans, we want to do what we can to help our neighbors.”
Devon Energy is a leading independent energy company engaged in the exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas.
· Gov. Mary Fallin, in coordination with the United Way of Central Oklahoma, has established the OK Strong Disaster Relief Fund to assist with the long-term medical, emotional and educational needs of victims of the May 20 tornado in Moore and the May 19 tornado near Shawnee.
“We are appreciative and grateful for the outpouring of support for our state in the wake this week’s devastating tornadoes,” Fallin said. “The generosity of Oklahomans, Americans and people across the world is very encouraging and will help meet many of the short-term needs of victims. However, experience tells us there also will be long-term consequences to the challenges victims are facing. We hope the OK Strong Disaster Relief Fund can help meet those long-term needs. I very much appreciate the United Way of Central Oklahoma for their generosity and help in creating this fund.”
