During our spring parish-wide Day of Service, our Habitat for Humanity project was one of the most popular area where our volunteers wanted to help. We appreciated everyone's willingness to help out but realize not every one could. Now there is another Habitat opportunity that we'd like to share with our parishioners...
Tulsa Habitat for Humanity is kicking off a new program serving Tulsa-area homeowners. A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) helps low-income families maintain their homes through projects like improvements, repairs and accessibility on the exterior of their homes. ABWK is kicking off the program in Tulsa's historic Crutchfield Neighborhood.
There are three ways you can volunteer:
1. Volunteer. Habitat for Humanity is seeking 500 volunteers a day. It will be a great way to spend a spring day outdoors supporting our neighbors.
2. Donate material. Donations of materials help keep costs low and are tax-deductible. ABWK is in need of basic exterior maintenance and lawn care items.
3. Donate food. A food drive will benefit the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. the Food Bank is the largest, private hunger-relief organization in Eastern Oklahoma which helps feed more than 70,000 people in our community each week.
This is a great way to get out into our community and spread the love of Christ and help our neighbors in need. Volunteers must be 16 years old or older.
