The American Racing Pigeon Union's Executive Director, Karen Clifton, delivered over 200 shirts to the City Rescue Mission in Oklahoma City on Monday, June 9. Being mindful of the challenges of the homeless in the city, the AU determined that the shirts, which were overruns from a past event, could serve a more worthy purpose than sitting at the AU office.
In speaking with Mission representatives, the AU learned that clothes are just one item out of a very long list of goods and materials that they would appreciate receiving.
Michael Dwaileebe, Community Relations Manager with the City Rescue Mission, received the shirts and shared, "The shirts will be distributed to homeless and near-homeless in the community as they are needed."
