Giveaway extends Tulsa ministry after closing
Tulsa-Rose Hill UMC recently donated $8,000 to ChildSHARE and Pearl’s Hope, programs within the Circle of Care, to enhance services for homeless children and youths.
The gift was the result of the dissolution of the Stork’s Nest, a longtime ministry of the church that provided items from diapers to toys for families in need.
Originally a joint partnership with Tulsa’s Junior League, the ministry was funded many years by the United Methodist Women of the Tulsa District.
Remaining inventory also was donated — children’s clothing, handmade blankets, and more — and it filled two trucks.
Pearl’s Hope Director Brenda Gill spoke to the Rose Hill congregation in a worship service, when the check was presented. She said not only will the inventory clothe and comfort youngsters, but also the funds will expand support to more families.
