Thank You For Making It a Great Celebration!
Wow! It was a great Birthday Party celebration for the homeless at John 3:16 Mission on March 12! Over 250 homeless men, women and children attended the event held in New Life Hall Chapel and Cafeteria in downtown Tulsa.
Thank you for helping to make it a fun time by sending in your heartfelt cards and by providing the funds to offer delicious meals and overnight shelter throughout the year.
We watched as guests read their cards. Some laughed and smiled. Others looked touched.
A special thank you to Andolini’s Pizzeria for providing the pizza for the event. It was incredibly popular with all the homeless guests. Guests also enjoyed cotton candy, popcorn, and, of course, cake and ice cream.
Thanks also to all of our amazing volunteers who manned the games and helped with the event set up and clean up.
Every guest received a gift bag that included a new pair of socks and birthday cards and they also were able to get hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss. Prizes from drawings included bus passes, bus tokens, umbrellas, backpacks, toys for children and bicycles.
