Hannah's Helping Hands, Inc. — Our Mission
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization providing financial assistance to families with children battling cancer. Many families need help with the most basic needs for their families during this fight for their child’s life. Some must leave work for months and even years to care for their sick child and the financial loss can be devastating. Our goal is to help as many families being treated locally as possible. We help with basic needs such as gas & food cards, groceries, wigs, utility payments, prescriptions, medical co-payments, rent/housing as well as other expenses. Our referrals come from doctors, nurses and staff at a local children’s hospital in Tulsa as well as our local communities.

Transit Lab Coming to Collinsville
Fill out a survey for a chance to a win an iPad!

For Immediate Release -- March 23, 2011

(Tulsa, OK) – The “Transit Lab” is scheduled to roll into Collinsville on Tuesday March 29 to engage the public and offer them a chance to win an iPad.

"With gasoline prices now well above the $3 mark we understand that more and more people will be considering alternatives to driving,” said Kasey Frost, INCOG’s Transportation Public Outreach Planner. “We look forward to hearing what transit options Collinsville residents want in the future."

From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29 the Transit Lab will be parked near Collinsville City Hall, 106 N. 12th Street.

The Transit Lab is designed to generate public participation in the creation of the first-ever transit system plan for the Tulsa region, called FAST Forward. So far, it has engaged hundreds of residents in Tulsa area since INCOG kicked off the public participation phase of the project in January.

Visitors talk with transportation experts, play a game, take a survey, watch an informational video and offer input, all while on the Transit Lab. Those who choose to participate in the survey will be entered to win a free iPad. There will also be refreshments for visitors to enjoy.

The FAST Forward Transit System Plan is a process to identify and prioritize the Tulsa region’s highest traffic areas, followed by a detailed analysis of alternative transportation modes for specific corridors. Jacobs Engineering Group Inc., which has offices in Tulsa and experience on similar projects in Oklahoma City and across the nation, is leading both the technical and public participation components of the effort.

INCOG, the Tulsa regional transportation planning agency, initiated the development of the regional transportation plan in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Tulsa Transit Authority, the City of Tulsa and INCOG member communities including Broken Arrow, Bixby, Jenks, Owasso and Sand Springs.

Funding for the Transit System Plan was collected from the communities/entities which have been identified as possible beneficiaries of this process: City of Tulsa, City of Broken Arrow, City of Bixby, City of Jenks, City of Owasso, City of Sand Springs, as well as MTTA and ODOT.
