IC Bus Aids Oklahoma Tornado Recovery Efforts

Posted on June 12, 2013

MOORE, Okla. — IC Bus, LLC, a subsidiary of Navistar, Inc., has donated a school bus filled with supplies and is also making a $10,000 contribution to Moore Public Schools to assist in the district’s recovery efforts.

The more than 800 employees of IC Bus in Tulsa, Okla., were inspired to help the Moore community after seeing the destruction left by the recent devastating tornadoes. The employees rallied together to collect as many essential supplies as possible in one week — enough to fill an entire bus.

“We understand our donations today will never replace the lives that were lost or even come close to making up for the tragedy suffered by the Moore community,” said Suk Singh, director of manufacturing, IC Bus. “But it is our hope the bus and our donations will serve as a sign that we care about our customers, and that Moore, along with the rest of the state, will recover.”

IC Bus manufactures school and commercial buses, including the buses in use by Moore Public Schools, and donated an RE Series school bus built in Tulsa, Okla., that matches the buses currently in use.

Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett and IC Bus employees filled the school bus with school supplies and other essential care items before it left Tulsa.

“This is Tulsa — a city that is generous, community oriented, and a city that stands together to help Oklahomans in need,” Bartlett said.

The essential care items filling the bus’ seats will be donated to the Oklahoma City Salvation Army. In addition, Navistar will contribute $10,000 to the Moore Public Schools to assist in their rebuilding efforts. Navistar employees across the globe have donated more than $8,000 to the American Red Cross to assist in the disaster relief efforts.
