The needs in our region are great. As natives of the Ozarks, we believe in giving back to our community. We want to do as much as we can do to help. In addition to personal participation in various events, we offer discounts for charitable organizations. The following are just a few examples of the community involvement events in which we participate.
We offer a special program for teams that participate in fund raising runs/walks. When you order 12 or more shirts for your team, we will donate 10% of your order to your charity. You’ll get a two color front and two color back for only $10.00.
BCFO reaches out to friends and neighbors who have been affected by breast cancer. They offer support and comfort in real and practical ways, providing support networks, mentor programs, a full range of resouces regarding breast cancer awareness, dianvonsis and treatment, where to find related community services, and more.
Each year, the Greek Corner supports the BCFO Pink in the Park event at Hammons Field. We print hundreds of shirts annually and give them away in return for a donation to BCFO. To date, the Greek Corner has helped raise thousands of dollars for this important cause.
In May of 2013, Moore, OK experienced the wrath of a deadly tornado. Those victims clung to hope for the restoration of their lives and their city. However, it would take more than hope to recover from this disaster. It would take hard work, the prayers of a nation, and the generosity of friends, neighbors, and strangers. In an effort to what we could for our neighbors to the west, the Greek Corner designed and sold t-shirts supporting relief efforts in Moore. Profits from the purchase of t-shirts went to Convoy of Hope to assist their tireless effort to help those in need.
Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.
The Greek Corner is pleased to work closely with several MS Walk teams as they did their part to battle this disabling disease.
In January 2010 “Champions Committed to KIDS” began operations with the objective of pairing ill children with local-area athletes to involve them in scholastic athletics. Partnering with CoxHealth and Mercy, school-age children with serious illnesses are identified, interviewed to determine their favorite sports activities, and then assigned to an athletic program involved that sport.
