CommunityYard Sale! (1)During Tax-Free Weekend — Aug. 4-6 — you can shop to your heart’s desire without having to pay those pesky taxes!

It’s also a phenomenal opportunity to buy essential items for people on the streets to survive the dangerous summer heat.

While you’re out shopping this weekend, we hope you’ll pick up the following items to benefit those we serve at our peer-run drop-in centers in Tulsa & OKC:

  • T-shirts – short sleeves and tank tops
  • Flip flops
  • Shorts
  • Undergarments and socks – bras, underwear, undershirts, boxers/briefs, socks of all kinds

Our peer-run drop-centers offer a family and supportive atmosphere for adults experiencing the challenges of homelessness and mental illness. Each has a variety of educational and social groups and staff members to provide case management for participants seeking housing, jobs, resume assistance, health and mental health screenings, and more. The overall goal is to promote self-determination so our participants can take control of their recovery.

We all know it gets hot in the summer and that fact is especially true for people living on the streets. While the weather is brutally hot, our peer-run drop-in centers are collecting clothing that people impacted by homelessness desperately need.

So, take advantage of all the tax-free savings this weekend in Oklahoma, August 4-6. Save big and make an even bigger difference!

You can drop off your donations at our Tulsa office located at 1870 South Boulder Avenue, or OKC office at 400 North Walker Avenue, Suite 190. We’ll be thrilled to accept your donations between 8:30 am-5 pm Monday-Friday. For more information, call us at 918.585.1213 or 405.943.3700.
