On this episode I chatted with Tricia Mitchel, Executive Director for the 4RKids Foundation. The 4RKids Foundation, Inc. was founded in Enid, OK, in 2003. A small group of parents and educators of children and adults with special needs recognized the need for more services and opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities in Garfield and surrounding counties of northwest Oklahoma. The mission of 4RKids is to promote community awareness of individuals with special needs, and to provide vocational, educational, and social/recreational opportunities for children and adults with special needs.
4RKids produces 4RPups dog treats which are handmade by employees with disabilities. We use human grade ingredients to make healthy dog treats. The treats come in three sizes for different dogs. All proceeds from the sale benefit the 4RKids Foundation which provides support and inclusion opportunities for children and adults with special needs. 4RKids pursues these goals in a number of ways, most visibly in three enterprises: 4RKids Mini Golf, 2nd Story Gift Shop and employment center.
