Range Lends a Hand to Neighbors in Need

Aug 25, 2014

Range Resources’ Midcontinent Division recently donated $20,000 to Moore Public Schools as part of the divisions ongoing efforts to help those impacted from last year’s severe tornado. The donation will be used to purchase new equipment including computers, smart boards and sound systems for assemblies at the Plaza Towers Elementary School.

That donation was part of “Range Relief” a company-wide employee collection and company match program aimed at helping those close to us who were devastated by the tornado that made national headlines. The program has amassed more than $86,000 total for the school, Range families, and Range friends who were impacted.

“The tornado was devastating, but what was even greater was the outpouring of support that we saw from the community, our local Range team, and from every corner of our company,” Max Holloway, Vice President for the Midcontinent Division, said. “The morning after the tornado hit, our team came together and planned what they could do to help. Within a few hours the team was at ground zero helping with many different facets of cleanup and then later restoration. That spirit of service and compassion – from folks all over the company in all of our operating areas, along with their families, our vendors and their families – has only grown stronger over time.”

Range employees recorded an impressive 240 hours of community service during the work day and over 95 days of effort on their own personal time. “They say you learn a lot about yourself during times of adversity,” Holloway said. “This was a trying time for our region and for our Range family. It was inspiring to see how everyone reacted by coming together and giving of themselves to help their neighbors. It’s yet another thing that makes me proud to be a part of this team.”
