ONCOR makes donation to Vision Group

The Oncor Cares Foundation is contributing $10,000 to the Jacksboro Vision Group Foundation to help provide elementary students with reading materials.

The contribution is one of 21 gifts totaling over $250,000 from the Oncor Cares Foundation to Texas nonprofit organizations. The contributions are focused on groups that help boost the ability to educate students, inform communities and increase access to the internet.

Ken Swan, President oftheJacksboroVision Group said the contribution will definitely help with purchasing needed materials for our elementary students and to help bridge the cap in their educational needs.

The Oncor Cares Foundation was started in 2020 by Oncor at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic as schools and educators were struggling to find resources to help children learn while at home. The Foundation is helping Oncor expand its charitable giving and provide support to the more than 400 communities within its service territory.

“Oncor has been serving and supporting Texas and the communities where we live and work for more than 100 years,” said Gordon Drake, Area Manager, Wichita Falls, Texas. “Our new Foundation will help us continue our tradition of helping schools, families and nonprofit groups across the state.”

Drake said the mission of the Oncor Cares Foundation is to contribute to nonprofit groups (501(c)(3) charities) that actively aid, on an equitable and inclusive basis, the health, education, safety, and general welfare of Texans.
