The Valero Corporation donated $175,000 in grants to thirteen organizations in Southern Oklahoma from the Boys and Girls Club of Wilson to the HFV Wilson Community Center.
Each year the company hosts a PGA Golf tournament to raise money. This year they collected a record $700,000.
Employees got to nominate organizations they feel need the money the most. Thirteen Ardmore area agencies were selected.
The Gloria S. Ainsworth Day Care Center relies on donations like these just to pay the bills.
Valero hosted a luncheon at the Ardmore Convention Center on Tuesday to present the agencies their checks.
