Chinowth & Cohen Realtors recently held a company wide fundraiser for the “Adopt an Eagle” backpack program sponsored by Bright Futures Joplin. Realtors from the six Chinowth & Cohen offices in the Tulsa Metro area donated $2,318 to assist in providing backpacks to the 7,740 kids starting back school this year in Joplin, MO following the devastating tornado on May 3.
Bright Futures Joplin is a grass roots, community based program that creates partnerships and utilizes community resources for the common goal of helping Joplin kids and strengthening families and community. They have been integral in assisting the Public Schools of Joplin in reorganizing after the tornado.
Bright Futures Joplin spearheaded a campaign to raise money so that every student starting back school this year received a backpack with necessary school supplies. Joplin Public Schools estimates 54% of their students were in the zone of destruction. Ten schools were partially or completely lost and 260 teachers lost classrooms and supplies.
“Our company has remained active in assisting our neighbors in Joplin, MO through this difficult time. Our Associates have donated money to a Children’s Crisis Shelter and now to students of Joplin public schools. We will continue our efforts through additional fund raising activities through the end of the year, “ said Sheryl Chinowth, CEO of Chinowth & Cohen Realtors. “The sheer devastation that affected that community is unbelievable. Anything we can do to assist them to rebuild and reorganize we are glad to do.”
