Sponsored 400 Missouri volunteers that completed 50 projects in Sequoyah county in a two-week period. The projects included helping the Cherokee elders, handicapped, veterans, schools, Vian city lake and the Vian peace center to name a few.

Founded the Vian Peace Center in 2010 and during the global COVID-19 pandemic has distributed 1.7 million pounds of food as of January 29, 2021. This includes the districts 1,3,4,5,6,7 and 8 in the Cherokee nation reservation. This 1.7 million does not include the Cherokee boxes that we distributed for the Cherokee Nation. 

During the flood in Webber Falls we provided emergency food, water, cleaning supplies, diapers, blankets and personal hygiene supplies to over two hundred and fifty people. Our facility housed displaced families and provided showers, food, blankets and personal hygiene to over 250 people.

During the tornado we provide hot meals to relief workers and emergency personnel.

During the search for the lost children on River Road we provide hot drinks and snacks to the emergency responders.

We started delivering food for the backpack program on March 1, 2012 and will continue until the program is no longer needed in our community.  

We have given drinks, snacks and fruit to various different organizations, for various community events.

I have worked closely with abused women shelters to help place women and children in a safe environment.

We started a 12-step faith based drug and alcohol program to help our community.
