The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital recently received a $6,000 grant from the Boeing Oklahoma City Employee Community Fund.
The grant will be used to promote injury prevention through the Hospital’s injury and prevention program – Safe Kids Oklahoma.
“Drowning is the third leading cause of death in children in Oklahoma. This generous donation from the Boeing Oklahoma City Employee Community Fund, will be used to purchase life jackets and life jacket loaner boards at Oklahoma lakes to encourage families to practice water safety,” said Kim Gray, director, Safe Kids Oklahoma. “The funds will also be used to purchase educational materials to provide ATV safety education throughout Oklahoma. We are so grateful for Boeing’s partnership to protect Oklahoma children!”
Through purposeful investments, employee engagement and thoughtful advocacy efforts, Boeing and its employees support innovative partnerships and programs that align with the company’s objectives, create value and help build better communities worldwide.
“The Boeing Oklahoma City Employee Community Fund is thrilled to present a grant to The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital for the Safe Kids Oklahoma program,” said Amanda Neamon, board president, Boeing Oklahoma City Employee Community Fund. “The Safe Kids Oklahoma program stood out amongst many other applications received by the employee community fund. Their focus on preventative education supports the employee community fund mission, of making a positive difference in the communities where we live and work. The impact of this program is diversified and far-reaching.”
