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.

“Perpetual Performances” of offense and defense, was in harmony for the Collinsville Cardinals Thursday night, as there was no “Eye of the Tiger” theme song, for the Coweta Tigers. The Cardinals put together a punishing running attack and aerobatic passing performance all night. The Cardinals swarmed the Coweta running backs in a bend but not break defensive attitude.
It was a GREAT performance, as the Collinsville Cardinals dominated their Metro Lakes Conference opponent. Since joining the 5A conference two years ago, the Cardinals are 6-0 against the Tigers in Jr. Hi games. Coweta will be a 5A 4 District opponent in 2012&13.
The parents, fans and Cheerleaders gave the Thursday night game a “Friday Night Lights” atmosphere.
The scores:
7th Grade: 22-8 Cardinals Win!
7th grade improve their record to 4-0.

8th Grade: 22-12 Cardinals Win!
8th grade improve their record to 3-1.

9th Grade: 34-8 Cardinals Win!
9th grade improve their record to 1-3.

No injuries were reported.
The next action for the Cardinals will next Thursday. The Cardinals travel to Pryor. Games begin at 5:00.
