OCTSF Will Discontinue Operations December 31st 2018

It is with heavy hearts that the executive announces that due to the current state of affairs in Oklahoma and the economic impact it has had on the foundation its staff and its sponsors.. That our last toy or train set will be distributed to children in need before December 31st 2018. We will be accepting donations up until December 23rd 2018.. Then Octsf will distribute it’s last gift to children by december 24th 2018.. Close the books, send out final thank you letters, and close the books December 31st 2018.. It has been good while it lasted and we thank you for your support these past 4 years of serving children in need.

Education Crisis Threatens Christmas for 3000-5000 kids in need this year

Hello,

Due to the current state of our economy, the teacher strike, education crisis, and slow down in business for sponsors, Octsf will be forced to cancel christmas for 100’s of 1000’s for kids in need this year.
Due to the withdraw of sponsors to do their part in supporting teachers in this time and shifting funds and resources to help those effected by the teacher walkout we have been told there are no more resources or support for the year to help octsf and its efforts to provide christmas for kids in need. It has also caused octsf to cancel its 2 biggest fundraisers of the year
The first annual marble run for toys june 2nd
The 3rd annual charity cruise in and toy drive august 25th
Due to the raise in cost of required liability event insurance levied by the cities and the hosting properties in which the events would have taken place thanks to the quote “civil unrest in our community”…the rising cost of porta potty, generator, entertainment, activities for kids, and tables and chairs for vendor booths were also factors taken into consideration when evaluating the current status since we being a smaller not for profit  organization could not justify spending that kind of money and not putting it towards the kids we serve..
The families that will not be receiving assistance due to the lack of support and having to cancel these events include
25% teacher or educator families
25% veteran status or active status military families
10% first responder families
10% families effected by disaster
15% low income families
15% families raising children of incarcerated parents
Which this overall effect will result in OCTSF having to close it’s doors as of December 31st 2018 as a result of these effects..
So I apologize but we will probably no longer be able to assist with news stories on families effected by crisis or emergencies..
I as a the executive director am devastated.. and I guess it was good while it lasted..
Thank you for your coverage and support..
Dustin
The money and toys we raised at the archery tournament will still be distributed to kids in need, however the level and amount of toys and trains distributed will be greatly reduced due to limited resources on hand due to other fundraisers being impacted..
