Oklahoma community banks aid hurricane victims

OKLAHOMA CITY — Community banks take great pride in being the foundation of their communities. When cities and towns are in need, they don’t hesitate to help in any way possible. These banks are also just as quick to react when the neighborhoods of their peers need assistance.

Following the recent rash of hurricanes in Texas, Puerto Rico, Florida and elsewhere, the Oklahoma Bankers Foundation began collecting funds from Oklahoma community banks to provide assistance to those in need. An impressive amount of $21,125 was recently collected, with more checks still coming in.

A presentation was made following the OBA’s monthly board meeting on Wednesday in Oklahoma City.
