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


MEETING THE NEED NEW INITIATIVES T he Power of 12 is a unique concept that answers the age-old question that most donors have: What difference can my donation make? By harnessing the power of the community, the power of 12,000 people coming together to do good with relatively small donations, much can be achieved. The Salvation Army Tulsa Area Command is on a quest to get 12,000 people in our community to pledge $12 a month for 12 months. By giving up perhaps two gourmet coffees a month or a movie ticket, even those with modest disposable income can make a big difference in the lives of those less fortunate in our community by being part of a larger power — the Power of 12! We are inviting people and businesses to challenge each other with whatever “12” challenge they can imagine and watch the power and good grow! Post your challenge on social media using the hashtag #Powerof12Tulsa. Join us today at Each month we will send you a brief text letting you know how your donation was spent. T he Salvation Army’s iconic red kettles are the official start of the Christmas season for many of us and have been for more than a century. The kettles signify a season of giving and thinking of those less fortunate than ourselves. Beginning in November, we see the bell ringers braving Oklahoma elements, whatever they may be, to bring good cheer and help to our neighbors. This year, The Salvation Army invited companies, families, church groups, Sunday school classes, civic groups and more to be a part of this tradition in a Day of RINGING! Oral Roberts University (ORU) led the way by taking all kettle locations in the Tulsa metro area for one full day! In total, we had 599 Day of Ringing volunteers who raised $71,639.50; 39 companies, 44 Scouting and civic groups and 40 individuals. Each time volunteers staff a kettle, it makes the Captain Ken Chapman, left, and ORU President Billy Wilson on ORU’s Day of Ringing. difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to shelter a family for a night, provide a hot meal to ten homeless people or provide homework tutoring to an at-risk youth. Will YOU join us this year? The Salvation Army will provide the kettle, stand, signage with YOUR COMPANY/GROUP name and logo, red Salvation Army aprons, bells, AND we offer an easy-to-use, online system to schedule your group! Call us at 918-587-7801 for more information! 22
