We knew the dollars would have tangible benefits, giving teachers and students more resources. That alone is enough reason to give. What we didn’t expect was the ripple effect that followed.
The donations sparked conversations that encouraged others to give. Our employees began discussing how and where they, personally, could give. We’ve had internal fundraising campaigns, and Prairie matched employee contributions. Volunteer days have been organized. The spirit of generosity and caring for our Oklahoma neighbors became contagious. Turns out our decision to give back in 2017 improve the future direction of Prairie Oil & Gas.
Our company was built on the theory that more can be gained through cooperation. This is true with public education and other important issues facing our state. If all Oklahoma business leaders include community giving in their budget, 2018 is destined to be a great year.
