2024 Spring Sing Philanthropy

Every year, the Spring Sing executives choose an organization to honor and raise funds for. This year, that organization is Hilltop Clinic. 

Senior Asiah Powers, the 2024 Spring Sing Philanthropy Director, explained the background behind the chosen organization. 

 “Hilltop Clinic is a pediatric clinic located in the historic Capitol Hill community, on the southwest side of Oklahoma City. Their mission is to provide quality healthcare to children regardless of their socioeconomic status, immigration status, race, religion, or any other factor,” Powers said. “Hilltop Clinic exists to demonstrate the love that God has for each of us through whole-person care, tending to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children and families in our community.”

The Hilltop Clinic was not only chosen for its focus on whole-patient care, but Powers said the decision to raise funds for the clinic also stems from her personal experience working for a similar organization.

“I chose this organization because it reminded me a lot of my mission work I did this past summer. I spent 6 weeks in Guatemala last summer as a medical mission intern working in different clinics which saw a variety of patients, many of whom were kids,” Powers said. “The organization I worked with has a children focused program that promotes regular healthcare for the kids and their families.”

While Spring Sing is centered around the clubs’ shows, Powers said the emphasis on philanthropy helps to center everyone back to the show’s main focus of giving back. 

“Spring Sing philanthropy is important because it showcases the heart Oklahoma Christian has for the community and allows that to be a main focus of Spring Sing,” Powers said. “I love giving back to the community in as many ways as I am able.”

Student Leadership Coordinator Savannah Mathews, who partnered with Powers in organizing the partnership with Hilltop, said she was excited to work with the organization. 

“Emma [Executive Director] and Asiah selected the organization this year before I joined the party and  took on my new role in Student Life,” Mathews said. “When they caught me up to speed, I was thrilled with their choice and excited to get the opportunity to work with Asiah to raise money for such an important organization.”

Philanthropy is not only about helping a well-deserved organization, but Mathews said it also symbolizes the deep impact of a tight knit community coming together to support something beyond itself. 

“I believe the Spring Sing philanthropy is an opportunity for Oklahoma Christian University to give back outside of our own walls,” Mathews said. “As a community we get to support organizations that make the world a better place as well as learn, grow, and spread awareness for an important cause/organization. I love that students, alumni, friends, and family of Oklahoma Christian get a hand in doing good all together.”
The Hilltop Clinic continues to look for volunteers to serve at its local location in Oklahoma City. Those interested can visit this link for more information on ways to get involved.
