Boeing Donates $250,000 to Support Wildfire Recovery and Relief Efforts in Texas and Oklahoma

ARLINGTON, Va., March 6, 2024 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] is committing $250,000 to assist with recovery and relief efforts in the aftermath of wildfires in the Texas panhandle and western Oklahoma.

Funding from the Boeing Charitable Trust will support the following organizations:

“Boeing’s contributions are a reflection of our commitment to the places we call home,” said Ziad Ojakli, executive vice president of Government Operations at Boeing. “We’re glad we can provide support as communities come together for recovery and healing in the aftermath of the wildfires.”

“The Amarillo Area Foundation’s Panhandle Disaster Relief Fund is being used to address the immediate needs of those impacted by the devastating wildfires in our region. We are currently focused on food, water, shelter, and clothing,” said Clay Stribling, President/CEO. “We will also be working closely with regional providers to address long term needs like grief and trauma counseling, livestock and agriculture losses, first responder organizations and their readiness, and other needs that arise as we more closely identify the damage done to our communities.”

“The loss from wildfire damage is insurmountable for many cattle raisers without the support and generosity from those like Boeing,” said Arthur Uhl, Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association President. “We are grateful for Boeing’s recognition of the important rural communities in the Southwest and the ranches and people that steward our open space and livestock. We look forward to placing their donation to the TSCRA Disaster Relief Fund in the hands of cattle raisers impacted by the wildfires in Texas and Oklahoma.”

In addition to corporate charitable investments, Boeing employees give to their local communities by participating in volunteer and charitable gift match programs. Consistent with Boeing employee gift match programs, the company will match qualifying employee contributions made in support of wildfire relief efforts.
