CLAREMORE —

“Our goal is to help those people — those peolpe who’ve been crumpled up and thrown down — to find their value,” he said. 
“Our work and the work of so many other agencies is made possibly largely from the help of the Rogers County United Way — through them, our agency and so many others are able to make a difference in the lives of families in Claremore and around Rogers County.”
Tri-County CASA Director Angela Henderson concurred with McSpadden’s sentiments, highlighting the importance of the Rogers County United Way and an upcoming fundraiser.
“The Holiday Boutique is the perfect opportunity for people to get their Christmas shopping done early and all for a good cause,” Henderson said. 
Other agencies which benefit from the RCUW include American Red Cross, Claremore Meals on Wheels, Claremore Senior Citizens, Community Action Resource & Development, Hospice of Green Country, Inola Senior Citizens Center, The Manger, Rogers County Adult Day Care.
The Fouth Annual Holiday Boutique is today and tomorrow at Rogers State University Centennial Center.
