Phillips Murrah's Paying It Forward amplifies the message of one non-profit organization each month, all year long.

In Dec. 2020, Phillips Murrah 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.

Our Paying it Forward beneficiary in July 2024 is Wings: Special Needs Community. #PIFOKC

Wings: Special Needs Community

Disability Pride Month is celebrated every July to honor the disability community’s history, achievements, experiences, and struggles. It originated in the United States in 1990 to commemorate the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law, and the first Disability Pride Day was held in Boston that same year. The first official Disability Pride Month celebration was in July 2015, which also marked the 25th anniversary of the ADA. 

As we celebrate Disability Pride Month, Phillips Murrah is proud to announce our support for Wings: Special Needs Community as our July Paying it Forward beneficiary.

Wings is an organization that aims to enhance the lives of adults with developmental disabilities. They achieve this through social, vocational, and residential programs guided by principles from the Bible. Their goal is to build a community in Oklahoma where individuals can reach their full potential, as intended by God, and live healthy, satisfying, and enjoyable lives. Wings aims to help everyone grow socially, emotionally, and spiritually while feeling safe and independent. They provide educational opportunities for members to continue developing their skills and talents.
