Community - 2018

Neosource, Inc. strongly supports the local community and is pleased the following agencies provide us the opportunity to give back to a community that has given so much to us. We encourage supporting these agencies that so strongly impact our society by improving the life for all of us.

DHS Christmas for Kids
December 13, 2018


Envisioning the joy of a child opening a present Christmas Day is something all of us can appreciate. Working with Tulsa Advocates for the Protection of Children, Neosource was again eager to partner with TAPC, sponsoring 35 children for 2018. TAPC provides a list of a child’s first name and his/her first and second Christmas wish. Several Neosource folks go shopping for the 35 children and labels the gifts for each child. This list is very comprehensive and takes a lot of volunteer time to develop - Thank you TAPC!!

Additionally, our great staff whole heartedly supported a separate company toy drive, providing bicycles and toys to help ensure each foster child wakes up with something for Christmas. A special thanks to Academy Sports at 6120 E 41st Street by providing a discount towards 35 bicycles. We thank all the DHS and TAPC volunteers for making this possible, as there is tremendous work behind the scenes none of us ever see. A special thanks to Maura Browne, who, with many other volunteers, has worked with Neosource for many years to make this happen. 2018 is Maura’s last year, and we wish her well in her retirement.

For 2018, over 1626 local children in OKDHS custody had their Christmas wishes fulfilled. The large room photo represents gifts from the many area donors, with a special acknowledgement to Venture Properties Allen Brothers for donating the use of this large facility (this is their 8th year donating the property).

United Way Speaker Emeka Nnata
October 10, 2018


Neosource was privileged to personally hear Emeka Nnaka’s most inspirational response to his dramatic change in life at the early age of 21. If this posting appears familiar, it is because he visited Neosource in 2015, and we’re happy for his 2018 return as representative and speaker for the Tulsa Area United Way. Visiting ABOUT NEOSOURCE in 2015, you’ll see a poster of Emeka which we searched high and low to find for his 2018 visit. We learned we had given it to him in 2015. Since 2015, we’ve added many new members at Neosource that were fortunate to hear Emeka for the first time. Neosource was honored to pause production, and listen how this fine young man has confronted unforseen and most difficult challenges. Emeka’s impressive story may be seen at http://www.tauw.org/tauw/Emekas_Story.asp.

CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video of Emeka on The Ellen Show.

Meeting Emeka personally and his interaction with everyone provided real insight of the goodness and high caliber of his personality. In 2015, we got to visit his cool van and enjoy his exuberance this vehicle provided for his independence. Unfortunately, this 2013 van was recently totaled, and Emeka’s in the process to replace this specially outfitted van. If that wasn’t enough, his apartment complex caught fire, but he’s soon moving into another apartment. IF anyone out there has a great deal on a van that can be converted for his special equipment, please contact Bill at Neosource. Ideally, a modified house to accommodate Emeka’s custom skills would be a great improvement over an apartment. Neosource is investigating those options, but with Tulsa’s sizeable and enviable philanthropic community, the right person might just read this story and come forward with a solution. Call Bill if you do.

This was all made possible through Tulsa Spirit Aerosystems loaned executive, Tyra Woodard-Owens, TAUW Campaign Associate. We thank Spirit for supporting the TAUW by loaning personnel for these campaigns, and for Tyra for coordinating this event.

United Way Day of Caring
September 14, 2018


For the 14th year, Neosource participated in the United Way Day of Caring. Neosource’s first Day of Caring was 2004. Started in 1991, 2018 represents the 27th United Way Day of Caring. Today, it represents 59 Partner Agencies. Day of Caring – truly an invaluable community service.

This year’s crew consisted of a lot of new Neosource faces that haven’t participated in previous Day of Caring’s. Our ‘old timer’s’ at previous Day of Caring’s held down the fort and maintained our busy work schedule to meet customer’s expectations.

It was our privilege to build a ramp for a wonderful 77 year old special (yes, special, not senior) citizen enabling her to exit and enter her house more easily using a walker. Without a ramp, using a wheel chair with assistance was a great challenge, so the ramp is a BIG improvement. It significantly assists preventing falls, which is critical for those over 70.

With the manpower available, the front porch steel railing and supports were power wire brushed, primed and painted providing a nice fresh appearance with all rust removed. Her son had already done a great job of cutting the grass and all the bushes, so just a few were topped off as needed.

Some Day of Caring’s have super great weather with low heat and low humidity. However, this year was one of those hot and humid years with little shade. Despite the high sun, high temps and a lot of drinking water, a truly quality ramp was built that will last many, many years. We’re fortunate to have such skilled workers. Thanks to all for ‘sweating’ it out!!

Our crew had a great time and enjoyed the opportunity to volunteer for this worthwhile project. Neosource is truly a blessed company, and we always appreciate giving back to our community. Thanks to everyone for improving the lives of others.

Neosource encourages everyone to support the 2018 United Way, to whatever level you can afford. No matter how large or small, it all adds up and, as always, will be used for many great causes for one of the 59 Partner Agencies. See their great page and video at http://www.tauw.org/tauw/default.asp Our 2018 United Way Partner for building this ramp is Ability Resources. www.abilityresources.org

Ability Resources’ mission is to assist people with disabilities in attaining and maintaining their personal independence through advocacy, education and service. One way this can be achieved is in the creation of an environment in which people with disabilities can exercise their rights to control and direct their own lives. Ability Resources is a non-residential Center for Independent Living dedicated to maximizing the independence of individuals with disabilities.
