Night Light Tulsa

Thursday March 1st, we are sponsoring the meal for Night Light Tulsa and serving Tulsa's homeless along with other community volunteers.  Please click here to find out more about Night Light Tulsa, as well as their expectations for the evening.  Here is the itinerary for the evening:

6-6:15 PM Arrive under the bridge located at 202 N. Maybelle, Tulsa OK.  (The intersection of Maybelle and Brady).  Many people will park on Maybelle south of the bridge in the residential area.  Students MUST have their parent with them, and students must also be visibly wearing their Jenks 8th Grade Band tshirt.  When the big box truck arrives, please help the Night Light staff put tables and chairs out for the stations and guests.

6:30 PM  Attend the mandatory orientation meeting with the staff of Night Light Tulsa.  The staff will go over ground rules for this evening, and they will also assign volunteers for the various stations.  Because we are sponsoring the meal, we are guaranteed 20 volunteer spots in the meal/drinks line.  I have created a sign-up genius for those spots  here.  Please only sign up the student name.  If we do not fill up the 20 spots with students, then we will fill in the rest with parents.  You are also more than welcome to volunteer for other areas (such as giving out clothing, books, children's games, toiletries, etc).  However, I do want parents to be near their children at all times.   

7:00-9:00  Serve the homeless!  Talk to them.  Look them in the eye.  Engage in conversation!

9:00-9:30 Clean up.  Please stay and help!  When we are finished with clean-up, please walk in groups back to your car.  There are Night Light staff members and community volunteers who will gladly walk you to your car.  Please don't hesitate to ask!

Finally, through your generosity, we were able to donate $672.86 to the City Lights Foundation of Oklahoma.  THANK YOU for giving to this cause!  It costs about $650 to serve the homeless in one evening, and so we were able to fully sponsor this meal.  I'm so appreciative!!
