One True Light, Inc. administers two programs designed to positively impact the lives of children in Duncan and the surrounding area. Our mission is “Linking Generations to Learn, Love and Live Together”.
Link ONE Mentoring
The letter above is from a young lady who attends Woodrow Wilson Elementary. She and her mentor talked about potential activities she could do when she thinks she is bored during her summer break. They also talked about good books to read if she got to make a trip to the public library, and about how she might get to see her brother over the summer. Little things like this help us to solidify the belief our mentors are truly having an impact on the lives of their Link ONE Kids. Please consider being a mentor for the 2017 / 18 school year.

Spokes for Hope 2017
Results and “Unexpected Outcomes”
Spokes for Hope 2017 was more successful than our wildest dreams. Beginning with a grant from Sarkeys Foundation, and gathering generous support from our community, we were able to fund, prepare and serve 3,790 meals using our original door-to-door delivery model. We also continued our partnership with Oklahoma Regional Food Bank to provide about 1,250 meals at 4 sites.
Often in non-profit work we focus on meeting one need, but learn that in doing so, we actually accomplish something different or meet an additional need. In our 5th year of Spokes for Hope service to our community, we had the opportunity to see a couple of students who have been served by our program for several years become volunteers themselves! It seems the young volunteers who have served with their local church team to prep and deliver meals have set a wonderful example of service for those receiving the meals. These young men wanted to serve, and we found a way to make it happen!
