Oilfield Helping Hands (OHH), a non-profit organization that helps oilfield families in financial crisis, has awarded its first grants from the Permian Basin Chapter to qualified recipients. The Chapter held its first meeting under new leadership in November 2018.
To qualify for a grant, the applicant must work for one of OHH’s corporate members or live and work in an area covered by the Permian Basin Chapter. He or she must also have a minimum of four years’ experience in exploration and production, and 75 percent of their income must derive from that employment. County territories supported by the Chapter include Lea, Eddy, Gaines, Dawson, Borden, Andrews, Martin, Howard, Loving, Winkler, Ector, Midland, Glasscock, Sterling, Coke, Ward, Crane, Upton, Reagan, Irion, Tom Green, Crockett and Schleicher.
Justin Robertson, Permian Basin Chapter president, said, “We are proud to provide support to our first grant recipients in the Permian Basin region. Our mission to provide financial aid to oilfield families in crisis through no fault of their own is made possible by the support of our corporate members and volunteers. Our Chapter meets every month and has upcoming fundraising events scheduled, including The Black and Gold Bash, slated for June 2019. We are seeking sponsors for these upcoming events.”
