A local of Edmond, Oklahoma, Traci Singer has one mission in life: to pay it forward. So when she was approached by the people from Project 66, she didn’t have any second thoughts of getting involved.
Project 66 is a non-profit food and resource center that helps 500 families every month and also supplies children with backpacks and school materials. It all began when the students noticed their classmates bring their school lunch home to feed the other members of their families. So even if the kids were part of the backpack program, they were left unfed every day.
Eve Cook, a worker for Project 66, learned about Traci’s generous heart. So when they had a new back-to-school campaign, she reached out to the hairdresser and asked Traci if she would like to give haircuts for the new school year.
For two years in a row, Traci has made a team of stylists and lent their services to clients of Project 66, providing more than 50 new haircuts for free.
Eve was inspired by her generosity and nominated Traci for the “Pay It 4ward” reward.
When a camera crew entered Traci’s workplace one day, she didn’t know what to expect. But her selfless acts and kindness did not go unnoticed. She was awarded $400 by News 4 and First Fidelity Bank as part of the Pay It 4ward program.
The reward came at the right time to help Traci purchase a new car.
Immensely grateful and still in disbelief, she shares her belief that the Lord uses people as instruments. Traci considers herself a vessel and helping others is what she does.
