SALLISAW, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation donated $6,300 Wednesday to the Muldrow Boys & Girls Club.

The funds will help with the construction of new awnings that will provide shade to patrons at the town’s baseball field complex.

“Little league baseball and softball are very community centric, and it’s important to provide the necessary accommodations so that everyone from kids to elders can enjoy the games,” said Tribal Councilor Bryan Warner. “This organization is heavily invested in the community, so I jumped at the opportunity to help with this project when approached. The Cherokee Nation prides itself on being a good partner, and we could not have found a better organization to partner with in Sequoyah County.”

The tribe donated the money from its special projects fund.

“Baseball and softball games have been community events for many, many years in northeast Oklahoma, so it is great that tribe can step up and help the Muldrow Boys & Girls Club keep that alive in their community,” said Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. “I commend Tribal Councilor Bryan Warner for identifying such a great partner that is focused on keeping their community strong.”

Projects funded through the special projects fund are selected by Tribal Council and Principal Chief Bill John Baker’s office and allow the tribe to partner with communities and organizations on projects that benefit both Cherokee Nation citizens and non-Cherokees alike.
