Express Employment Professionals donated $300,000 to COHFH to be used towards the purchase of lots in Moore neighborhoods following the May, 2013 tornadoes.
In celebration of its 30th anniversary, at Moore Fire Station Number 1, Express launched its “Celebrating 30 Years with 30 Homes” initiative to help rebuild Moore. “The May 2013 tornadoes left a deep scar on our state,” said Bob Funk, Express CEO and chairman of the board. “Following the devastation, the city of Moore and surrounding communities have shown incredible resilience. In every disaster, people in the eye of the storm need a helping hand. At Express, we are always here to lend a hand.”
Express will provide funds every two months for five years toward the purchase of 30 lots. With international headquarters in Oklahoma City, the employment and staffing company will also provide a workforce of its headquarter’s employees to periodically assist Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity with construction. Employees will volunteer for one workday every two months in conjunction with a new lot purchase.
