Block Party 2018!
Hundreds of homeless men, women and children had a fun time at John 3:16 Mission’s Annual Block Party held Sept. 22.
The party featured inflatables, games, prizes, food and a haircuts along with live praise and worship music.
For those without the financial means to attend the Tulsa State Fair or other events, the Block Party was a chance to forget troubles for a few hours and enjoy a respite from the harsh realities of life on the streets.
“We need to show those who feel forgotten that we see them,” said Rev. Steve Whitaker.
“On a human level, we truly understand that they need a break from the desperation of their everyday circumstances. The Mission is here to help them change those circumstances, so they can get their lives back on track.”
The Mission thanks all its donors and volunteers whose contributions of time and treasure helped to make this important event possible.
