It is an exciting day at Infant Crisis Services. Our executive director, Miki Farris, is receiving national honors today for her tireless work creating and growing this organization over the past 29 years. As you may know, Miki co-founded Infant Crisis Services in 1984 as a Sunday school project. In the first year, Infant Crisis Services helped 500 babies here in central Oklahoma. Today, we help approximately 14,000 babies and toddlers every single year! It is truly a testament of Miki's passion and dedication to helping those in need, and now that dedication is being recognized nationwide.
Miki has received one of the 2013 Classic Woman Awards from Traditional Home magazine and will be featured in the October issue which hits newsstands tomorrow!
The Classic Woman Awards celebrate the spirit of volunteerism by recognizing standout charitable women from across the country. Over the past eight years, Traditional Home has recognized a diverse range of extraordinary women who have made a difference in their communities. Miki was nominated by Kirk Hammons (pictured) who attended the banquet as well. The winners were chosen by the magazine's editorial staff.
Miki and the four other Classic Woman Award winners attended a luncheon in their honor today at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel ballroom in New York City. CBS This Morning anchor Norah O'Donnell was the host of the event.
Your staff and your community are so proud of you, Miki! Thanks for all that you do for the babies!
