Hundreds of volunteers launch community service tour in Tulsa with over 30 projects – FOX23 News
TULSA, Okla. (KOKI) – Several local churches, schools and government officials are coming together to help identify needs in communities across the country.
This is part of a national effort called the Tour of service, led by a group called Send Relief. Send Relief is a collaboration between the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board that aims to support and make a difference in communities. The tour will officially start in Tulsa.
On October 15 and 16, more than 500 volunteers will come together to support more than 30 projects in the metropolitan area of Tulsa.
Mike Lehew, who is Church Inside Out’s senior missionary in Sapulpa, said they are one of the many churches that will be contributing to the local effort. He says some of the projects include helping families who have lost children through DHS, supporting first responders, and completing school beautification projects like at Lindbergh Elementary in eastern Tulsa.
Lindbergh director James Isaacs said it was an automatic yes when one of the local churches contacted him. Isaacs said any improvement for the school is a victory for their students, teachers and staff. He said that painting a teacher’s room or beautifying a garden can not only make his school proud, but also help improve student education.
Lehew said they are always looking for more volunteers. For all those who wish to register and help, they can go to ServeTour.org.
