December 5, 2014 (Jenks, OK) – Each year going along with the holiday giving spirit Tedford Insurance chooses a charity to support. This year John 3:16 was chosen for the Tedford campaign drive.
As the weather starts turning colder, there is a tremendous need for blankets for the homeless and less fortunate and that’s why Tedford Insurance will be conducting a “Blanket Drive”. We will accept new or gently used, clean blankets. There will be a table in the lobby of their Jenks location 121 E Main Street, Jenks, for you to drop off your blankets.
Another way Tedford Insurance is supporting the mission is through monetary donations. They are in great need of funds this year. The cost to feed one person is $2.11, the goal of Tedford Insurance is to raise enough money to feed 100 people. To raise donations, they are organizing office lunches through the month. Some of the lunches on schedule are December 11th: Chili lunch with cornbread and dessert, December 18th: Mexican lunch with dessert, and December 23rd: Italian lunch with salad, garlic bread and dessert.
John 3:16 Mission is an interdenominational Christian ministry that exists to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of Tulsa’s hungry, homeless and at-risk. Located in downtown Tulsa, the Mission provides food, shelter, clothing and restorative programs to those in need. Since its founding in 1952, the Mission has served in excess of 4 million meals and provided over 1 million individual shelters to the homeless.
John 3:16 Mission is Tulsa’s only Gospel Rescue Mission and is a member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM). As such, it emphasizes the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to transform even the most broken lives for the better. To this end, the Mission strives through all its programs to emulate the compassion and love of Jesus so that the lives of homeless and at-risk people can be improved.
The Mission’s overnight shelter at 506 N. Cheyenne Ave. provides a safe refuge from the street each night for up to 110 men. The missions serves more than 500 meals each day to Tulsa’s homeless and at-risk. Additionally, the Mission operates a Family & Youth Center located in north Tulsa that is dedicated to family and community restoration. The FYC provides material, spiritual and educational support to at-risk, low-income families living in inner-city environments.
This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone in the Tedford Insurance office to come together and get involved and help those in need in the Tulsa community. The campaign will run from December 4th through January 5th.
