Infant Crisis Services has received two substantial donations from General Electric to provide formula, food and diapers to needy babies and toddlers in central Oklahoma.
GE, which is building a global research center in Oklahoma City, awarded an initial $25,000 to the nonprofit. The company awarded GE Artificial lift in Oklahoma City with the Chairman's Award for Growth. Along with that award came a $25,000 check, which they chose to give to us!
But the generosity doesn't stop there. The employees at GE Artificial Lift donated an additional $5,000 to our disaster relief efforts. As you may know, Infant Crisis Services opened a branch in Moore June 10th to assist families impacted by the May tornadoes.
“This money will help us provide the basic necessities of life to thousands of babies and toddlers in times of crisis,” said Miki Farris, executive director of Infant Crisis Services. “With the recent devastation in Moore and the surrounding areas, the need is bigger than ever, so we greatly appreciate the generous assistance from our friends at GE.”
Thanks to all of those at GE for giving to the tiniest citizens of central Oklahoma!
