Oilers Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity

TULSA, OK – The Tulsa Oilers traded in their skates and sticks for work gloves and hammers on Wednesday.  Oilers Head Coach Bruce Ramsay and the Oilers players took part in constructing two homes for Tulsa Habitat for Humanity.

The Oilers, along with the players from the Tulsa Junior Oilers, laid sod at one home, and assisted in building a shed and interior painting at a second site.  Both of the new homes are located a few miles northeast of downtown Tulsa and will be dedicated later this month.

“It was great for our team to come out here and be able to give of our time for such a worthy cause,” said Ramsay.  “I think our players feel very fortunate to be able to give something back to the Tulsa community that supports them so well and we are grateful to Habitat for Humanity for giving us this opportunity.”

Since its founding in 1988, Tulsa Habitat for Humanity has completed more than 200 homes in Tulsa county.  Through its 2025 Vision, Tulsa Habitat for Humanity is on a mission to eliminate sub-standard housing in Tulsa County and to help 1,500 low-income families in the Tulsa area with their dreams of home ownership by the year 2025.
