The Tulsa Habitat for Humanity has a new car to replace one that was stolen.
Apache Corporation delivered a replacement truck on Monday.
Officials said the truck is instrumental to the organization by helping Tulsa Habitat tow its mowing equipment and also helps in deliveries to build sites.
When Apache heard about the stolen truck, they decided to help. Tulsa Habitat now is the proud owner of a Chevy Silverado, 3/4 ton with CNG bifuel. This truck also comes with a hitch and is ready to be put to use.
Rob Johnston, Tom O’Neal, Tim Tomlinson and Julee Thomas, of Apache, delivered the truck to Tulsa Habitat Monday morning and Paul Kent was on hand to accept it the gift.
“Apache Corporation has been in Tulsa for nearly six decades. I have to believe that over the years Habitat for Humanity has touched our families – as well as many others. If this small contribution helps them carry on their mission, we are very pleased to be a part.” said Rob Johnston, Apache central region vice president.
“We cannot say enough about the generosity of Apache Corp.” said Paul Kent, executive director, Tulsa Habitat. “Just a week ago, they donated a conversion to CNG for our ReStore Box Truck and now they are giving us a truck to replace the one that was stolen. It is truly community partnerships like this that make our city, Tulsa a great place to live and work!”
