2020 saw big changes to the annual Day of Caring model for Tulsa AreaWay as our organization, partner agencies and hundreds of volunteers pivoted to address urgent needs and challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The multiple Days of Caring approach resulted in 50,000 pounds of food being collected, 155 pints of blood donated to help more than 400 people and hundreds of tech accessories being put into the hands of students to support them in distance learning. Thank you!
On Saturday, March 27, more than 170 volunteers from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, Arthur J. Gallagher, Matrix Service Company, Spirit AeroSystems, Tulsa Area United Way, Tulsa Community College and Williams went to work in the Greenwood and North Tulsa communities during the year we are recognizing the centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre.
In addition, almost 700 employees from Bank of Oklahoma and T.D. Williamson are volunteering remotely and writing Notes of Hope that will be delivered to staff and volunteers at six Tulsa Area United Way partner agencies.
A big thank you to Bank of Oklahoma for sponsoring our Notes of Hope again this year!
The Day of Caring regional food drive is Friday, June 25. Last year, you helped us collect 50,000 pounds of food for individuals and families struggling with food insecurity. More than 2,000 donors, representing 144 companies, helped make a direct and immediate impact for thousands of friends and neighbors in the Tulsa area. Get ready to help meet that need again this year!
