Funds raised will go to the Pervasive Parenting Center and will be used to help families in the area coping with disabilities. In the past the center has donated more than $800 to local special education departments in LeFlore, Sequoyah, and Haskell Counties. It also helped with autism training for more than 700 local teachers, professional, and parents. They have hosted Sensitive Santa in all three counties as well as Sibshops for siblings of children with disabilities. Members worked with state-wide resources to hold training and conferences in the area related to developmental disabilities.
“We are thankful and excited about the funds we raised here this weekend,” said Kodey Toney, director of the non-profit organization. “With these funds we will continue to give back to the communities and help bring in resources so that we can assist families in eastern Oklahoma struggling with the issues involved with having a disability.”
