Fostering self-esteem and a healthy lifestyle in at-risk children
U R Special Ministries, Inc. exists to foster self-esteem and healthy lifestyles in needy and at-risk children. We do so by providing new, one-of-a-kind outfits of clothing for the children of Edmond, Oklahoma, and distributing it to them in ways that are celebratory, interactive, and affirming.
We offer our service and love to the children and families in our community without regard to religion, race, or ethnic background.
U R Special would like to express our sincere appreciation to the students of the Edmond High Schools for choosing us as the thread organization for Double Wolf Dare Week, BALTO and SWINE Week. Thank you so much!
U R Special had another very successful year! We served 703 children at our most recent Winter Distribution and handed out over 2,000 outfits in the year 2013. Please join us at our upcoming Spring Distribution. All Edmond children who qualify are welcome to come.
The dates are:
Friday, April 11, 10am - 7pm
Saturday, April 12, 10am - 1pm
All children (whether or not it's your first visit) should bring proof of Edmond residency (in the form of a utility bill) or proof of enrollment at an Edmond school (report card). And the children must be present to personally select and receive their new clothes.
Our shoppers and seamstresses have been working hard in preparation for the spring distribution. So we hope you'll come join us on distribution weekend.
If you have Edmond children or know Edmond children who would like to participate, we are eager to serve them. And if you can volunteer to help us by working a shift during distribution, please give us a call. For all questions, please feel free to phone Darsi Graham at 340-2799.
