William D. Jones, MD, of Oklahoma City, OK, specializes in occupational and preventive medicine. In addition to seeing patients and running his office, William D. Jones, MD, enjoys giving back to his community. One of the ways he does this is sponsorship of the SWAT Academy, which is a training facility for youth softball and baseball players. Dr. Jones also sponsors the Angel’s Foundation, a non-profit that provides financial support to families so that their children can participate in sports.

The Angel’s Foundation recognizes the important part that playing sports has on a child’s life. Participating in team sports can help a child gain important skills and knowledge for adulthood, and is a fun way to keep active. The Angel’s Foundation encourages its donors, mostly local business people, to remember the fun they had playing sports throughout their own childhood.

The SWAT teams also raise funds for the Angel’s Foundation through a variety of means, including selling hot dogs at their events. All profits go directly to the Foundation.
