Oklahoma City based non-profit organization Oklahoma Cleats for Kids made its first delivery to Ardmore City Schools this winter with brand new sporting equipment and shoes for young athletes in need.
 C4K staff have been making visits to Ardmore regularly in 2016 to identify individuals, schools, and community organizations who could benefit from the new or recycled equipment they distribute.
“Thanks to the dedicated teachers and community leaders in Ardmore, we were able to meet many kids who needed this equipment,” executive director Stacy McDaniel said. “We are excited to offer our services to young athletes in Ardmore and hope to continue to meet the need in this community to empower children through sports!”
C4K gathered over 100 pairs of brand new running shoes as well as physical education equipment and then delivered the goods to Jefferson Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Charles Evans Elementary and the H.F.V. Wilson Community Center.
“This new equipment will have a tremendous impact on our community and our children,” said Lauren Moore, the Program Coordinator at H.F.V. Wilson Community Center. “We are excited to see our kids get out onto the field or court and play.”
Since the organization’s founding in 2011, C4K has distributed over 35,000 items to young student athletes across Oklahoma and currently partners with 29 school districts and 22 community organizations to best meet the need.
