Doing the most good in Rogers County
Food 4 Kids: Since 2009, this program has operated with the generous support of the United Way, Cherokee Nation, RCB, ESA Gamma Pi Inola, individuals, churches, organizations, businesses, and small grants. In addition, an army of volunteers makes it possible to send home over 1,300 bags of food every Friday to more than 400 kids from all eight of our school districts. It costs $125 to sponsor one child for an entire year, but any amount is welcomed.
Salvation Army Summer Camp: Thanks to the support of our donors, 40-50 kids have been attending Camp Heart O'Hills at Tahlequah, Oklahoma for over 30 years. Donations help purchase clothes, shoes, swimwear, and camp supplies for kids from low-income families.
Red Kettle Drive: Our annual drive begins around Thanksgiving and ends Chrismas Eve. Sharing just an hour of your time to "Ring the Bell" helps our vulnerable neighbors having emergency needs: gasoline, utilities, rent, lodging, meals, and medicine. These funds are distributed through our local Community Action, Resource and Development Office (CARD).
