Thank You for Making This Holiday Special for Oklahoma Foster Children

Thank you to each and every one of you who has requested/fulfilled Oklahoma Foster Children’s Wish Lists or donated money. We cannot thank you enough for supporting these children. All 6,000 “wish lists” have now been distributed or filled by donations from generous contributors. We still have wish lists outstanding, so please get them returned as soon as possible so a foster child does not go without this year.
We’d also like to thank The Journal Record, News9, KOCO 5 News, Oklahoma’s News 4, the Oklahoman, NonDoc, and the many other news outlets who covered our OK Foster Wishes effort (see a couple of the stories below). The Journal Record has also helped with ads which we greatly appreciate.
Please Note:
  • Last day to donate NEW, unwrapped toys for the Santa Shoppe – December 20
  • Last day to make a monetary donation at www.okfosterwishes.org or by mail (2915 N Classen Blvd, Ste 320, Oklahoma City, OK 73106) – December 24

We will also be having a “wrap up, drop-off party” Monday, December 18 from 10a-1pm, at Oklahoma’s Credit Union (formally the Oklahoma Employees Credit Union), 3001 N Lincoln, where Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making an appearance. Drop off a new, unwrapped child’s gift and snap a photo with our guests of honor! A Keep It Local card will be given to individuals donating an unwrapped gift with a value of $10 or greater (while cards last).
Any funds that might be remaining will go to support the effort next year and also help kick off our foster youth leadership symposium. Thank you for your support of OK Foster Wishes and the foster children of Oklahoma!

KIDS COUNT


 

The work OICA does underneath the capitol dome is supported by data surrounding children and families in Oklahoma. Our KIDS COUNT Data Center provides up-to-date data on multiple levels–community, county, state and national.

Oklahoma KIDS COUNT is part of the National KIDS COUNT network. Each year, the national KIDS COUNT Data Book provides Oklahoma’s state ranking in four main areas of child well-being compared to the other states.

Each of the four areas –economic well-being, health, education and family/community– are supported  by a series of key indicators for each area and provide a snapshot of trends over time. Click the orange box above for current state and National KIDS COUNT Data.
