“All proceeds and items collected will benefit Operation Homefront Oklahoma, a Lawton-based, statewide non-profit. OHOK provides “emergency financial and other assistance to Oklahoma military families and to our wounded warriors when they return home.” Carol Herrick, Oklahoma chapter president, stated.
Stuff the Bus Oklahoma is an Oklahoma Transit Association initiative which supports OHOK. First Capital Trolley joins other transit systems across the state supporting OHOK. OTA is a non-profit with membership composed of public and tribal transit systems.
