Phillips Murrah's Paying It Forward amplifies the message of one non-profit organization each month, all year long.
Since December of 2020, Phillips Murrah has partnered with Oklahoma NPR radio station KGOU to sponsor broadcast announcements each month that shine a light on a selected non-profit organization. Our aim is to amplify each beneficiary organizations’ needs and goals, and to help increase awareness, drive volunteer quality and quantity, assist in fundraising support, and improve capacity to deliver service to the community. In December 2022, Phillips Murrah is expanding the reach of our Paying it Forward partnership to include NPR’s other OKC radio station, KOSU.
Our Paying it Forward beneficiary in December 2022 is City Rescue Mission. #PIFOKC
City Rescue Mission
Phillips Murrah realizes that the holiday season can have a different meaning according to differing circumstances. That is why we are supporting City Rescue Mission as our December 2022 Paying it Forward beneficiary. For nearly 60 years, City Rescue Mission has been a beacon of hope to thousands in Oklahoma City and beyond. Sometimes bad things happen in life, leading people to make choices that lead them to a dark place. Without a good support system, people can turn to drugs, alcohol, and crime, landing them on the cusp of homelessness. City Rescue Mission offers a path back to hope. Instead of indefinite shelter, they offer a clean, safe, temporary place to stay, and successful programs and services to help people transform their lives for the better.
Through their Bridge to Life recovery program, City Rescue Mission helps people overcome the problems and issues that prevent them from living their best life. They support their guests every step of the way, with job training, educational opportunities, access to Service Coordination through Case Management Services, and more.
