The teacher walkout, now in a second week, has meant severe financial hardship for hourly workers in the Ponca City schools. These include bus drivers, crossing guards, those working in food service and others. An effort is now underway to help these employees pay their utility bills and organizers are making it very easy to take part and show our support.
The campaign, “Share The Power”, is accepting donations of cash, checks (made payable to PC Utility) or pre-paid Visa Cards. Donations can be dropped off in the drive-thru of First National Bank of Oklahoma at 1501 East Prospect in Ponca City.
Drive-In banking hours are Monday – Friday: 7:30 am – 6:00 pm and Saturday: 9:00 am – Noon. Phone number for the bank is: (580) 762-2265.
