Parenting Center Gets Donation


The LeFlore County Maidens of Mayhem recently hosted the Oklahoma City Victory Dolls to raise funds for the Pervasive Parenting Center (PPC).

The group donated more than $400 to benefit the PPC.

The Maidens donate proceeds from all the home matches to a local nonprofit organization. The competition held in May was dedicated to helping the PPC.

Center Director Kodey Toney said, “We are thankful for the Maidens and everyone involved in the organization. They donate each year, and have been a great blessing to our efforts in assisting families in this area of the state. The funding will go a long way in our efforts to help area children.”

The LeFlore County Maidens of Mayhem play Women’s Flat Track Derby Association style games. They were formed to help give back to the community through volunteering at social events, establishments, and fundraisers. They also work to promote lasting friendships, create a healthier lifestyle, gain a sense of purpose and to bring the community together through training, practices, bouts, and fundraising.

Toney said that bond extends to beyond the rink through professionalism, organization, and community service. Toney and his wife Jennifer founded the organization in 2014, and he, as the father of a child with autism, wanted to create a network of support for other families facing similar challenges.

The PPC is a not-for-profit organization made up of families, local educators, community leaders, and health-care professionals. The organization works to provide a better life for the families in eastern Oklahoma who are coping with disabilities. In the past, the center has used donations to help with Sensitive Santa, Sibshops for siblings of disabled children, scholarships for students with disabilities, classroom grants for special education departments in eastern Oklahoma, and to bring conferences, trainings, and resources to the area.
