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.

Extreme Weather
Following a week of high temperatures here near 110 degrees almost daily (and one day near 114) Collinsville and Oklahoma and the central United States are scorched. Downtown Collinsville did get about a 10 minute rain Saturday evening (August 4th) that will do little to break the summer long drought but was a welcome brief relief. There was also a bit of rain in the pre-dawn Sunday morning hours (Aug. 5th).

Saturday (August 4th) -- Like most everyone else northeast of the fires near Mannford or Bristow (~50 miles away) I've been seeing ash fall from the sky today. I wasn't even thinking of a photo until I found my black cat showing a fair load of ash this evening (even laying under a tree).
