Galaxy is committed to helping our community in whatever ways we can. We see it as our obligation as a small business to help serve the community that serves us.
Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma
Job closures, school closures and lengthy illness have devastating effects on many families and can leave them concerned about where their next meal will come from. Galaxy is contributing a portion of proceeds to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma who is working hard to help fight food insecurity in Oklahoma. During the Coronavirus pandemic, Galaxy is running various programs within our organization to support the Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma the best we can during this time.
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
Galaxy is a silver sponsor for Purple Stride Oklahoma 2020 for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Since the first walk in 2008, PurpleStride has been the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s most powerful vehicle for fundraising and awareness. Each year, in more than 50 PurpleStride events across the country, survivors, families, researchers, caregivers and others touched by pancreatic cancer come together to rewrite the future of this deadly disease. Together, we've raised more than $118.7 million for pancreatic cancer research and patient services through PurpleStride from 2008 to 2019. But the true impact of our work together is measured in progress, not dollars. The five-year survival rate has increased by four percentage points since 2014 and is now 10 percent.
The Junior League of Tulsa
Our Chief Financial Officer, Zena Shah, has been an active member of The Junior League of Tulsa since 2013 and Galaxy has and will continue to support the organization with donations both monetary and exciting product contributions to the Annual Gem Gala, the largest fundraiser for the organization. The Junior League of Tulsa has been effectively assisting those in need through their mission to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve our community.
Water for a Warrior
Water for a Warrior is a national organization whose mission is to provide and supply combat wounded Veterans that would benefit from hydro-therapy and aquatic fitness with pools, hot tubs and other aquatic related products and services so that these products and services are available to aid in their recovery, therapy and wellbeing. Each year, Galaxy Home Recreation helps raise money for this great cause by helping put on a casino night fundraiser with other pool and hot tub retailers based around the country. We have helped raise enough money to provide several pools and hot tubs to many great veterans!
Parkinson’s Foundation of Oklahoma
The Parkinson’s Foundation of Oklahoma’s mission is to inspire hope and transform life for Parkinson’s patients and families in Oklahoma. Their vision is to be the premier resource for comprehensive educational programs and support services to individuals in Oklahoma with Parkinson’s Disease and related movement disorders. We will strive to remain a credible and trusted community partner for PD family members and the medical services profession. Over the years, Galaxy Home Recreation has supported this great vision by providing resources, and products to cater to patients. We have also volunteered our time to staff and execute their events! We hope to continue to spread awareness and help provide support for their cause!
