Sunstate Equipment Foundation Grants $2,500 to Upward Transitions

OKLAHOMA CITY — Upward Transitions received a grant of $2,500 from the Sunstate Equipment Foundation that will be used for assisting clients with social services addressing poverty in Oklahoma County.

Upward Transitions’ CEO, Periann Pulliam shared, “We are so grateful to receive this support from the Sunstate Equipment Foundation. This will grant allow us to reduce homelessness in our community by keeping families and individuals in their homes through financial intervention.”

The Sunstate Equipment Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit charitable foundation, was formed in 2015 as a way for Sunstate Equipment and its employees to give back to the communities in which they live and work. Sunstate employees can also “sponsor” grant requests from their local communities, and funds donated or raised by Sunstate employees in their respective regions will stay in their region. This is designed to give Sunstate employees a greater impact on local charities with which they may be involved.

Upward Transitions is an Oklahoma County non-profit that serves families and individuals who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, or stranded by providing case management and stabilizing resources to help meet basic social needs.
