So, we'd like to update you on our final project for 2015 and let you know our plans for 2016. We're so excited, and can't wait to share with you!
Our last project of 2015 was for the OKC Metro House of Hope which is run by Vernon and Marilyn Carter. On November 21st we loaded a U-Haul trailer, and along with our youth group - The Wave from Abba's House Worship Center Church of God - delivered 110 blankets, 123 hats, 104 scarves, 3 ear warmers, and 102 pair of socks. We got there early in the morning, toured the facility, and helped serve breakfast to over 100 people. It was a cold day! We also passed out the hats, blankets, and scarves we made and also gave away socks we purchased to those who wanted them. In all, we handed out about half of the inventory we took there with us. Pastor Carter put the rest in storage to pass out as needed. Here are some pictures from the day:
And now for some super exciting news!! We are proud to announce that our first project for 2016 will be for Mama T's.
Mama T's is a new organization in Ada, OK. They are currently working on raising funds and remodeling a building that will be used as a shelter/center to provide both transitional housing and services for those who are homeless in our community. We're excited to have the opportunity to partner with this group to help others in need in our community.
The shelter is set to open Fall 2016, and our goal is to provide 100-150 hats, scarves, and blankets for their new facility. For more info about Mama T's, you can check out their story here:

We'll begin raising funds for this project soon, so be on the lookout for details about how you can help!
