The Salvation Army 2017 Impact Report for the tulsa Metro Area Command


MEETING THE NEED YOUR TIME, TALENT & TREASURE There are many ways you, your business, civic group and more can help The Salvation Army. In April, Little Caesars Love Kitchen made a stop at the Center of Hope homeless shelter and provided fresh hot pizza to all of the guests that day. US Cellular employees provide hundreds of volunteer hours at our Boys & Girls Clubs each year. Along with working with the youth, they also provide much needed repairs, cleaning and painting! The University of Tulsa Athletic Department partners with the Boys & Girls Clubs by providing tickets to games, campus tours and organizing sporting activities. These events give at-risk youth the opportunity to get on a college campus and set the sights for their future high. 14

MEETING THE NEED YOUR TIME, TALENT & TREASURE The Christmas season offers many ways for people, businesses, civic groups, churches, schools and more to get involved in making a difference in our community. Reasor’s Foods is a long-standing partner in our Red Kettle program. Here, Jeff Reasor shares his Red Kettle Reason. Matching Kettle Sponsors like Tulsa Gold & Silver, Bank of Oklahoma, and Lawn America help The Salvation Army continue its programs year-round. Tulsa Gold & Silver also partners with The Salvation Army by buying back any gold coins dropped in kettles! AAON helped us get the word out about DipJars — a way to support The Salvation Army at the Red Kettles when you don’t carry cash — by matching donations in DipJars. Have YOU dipped today? When it looked like the Center of Hope was going to be short on turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas, these employees of John Zink Hamworthy Combustion, also members of The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, jumped into action and organized a turkey drive. Through their efforts, the community came through! Employees from NORDAM also donated over 350 turkeys and hams! Blue Cross Blue Shield was one of 39 companies who participated in our Day of Ringing program this year. ORU took all kettles for an entire day! 15
