Tulsa-Faith received an award from CarePortal, a national non-profit that benefits hurting children and their families, for making the most contributions toward the program in Oklahoma. The church also came in fourth for all partners in the nation.

During 2021, the church fulfilled 162 requests that benefitted 240 children. The church’s donations totaled $15,120, but those donations had an impact of $90,095 for parents and families.

“All of these gifts and support are above our church’s budget and are filled directly by our church members,” said Rev. Heather Scherer, associate pastor at Tulsa-Faith.

Items included gas cards for parents working to maintain a quality of life for their children, baby supplies, handmade blankets and quilts, and more.

Chris Campbell, director of the 111 Project, presented the award to Kay Leslie, CarePortal contact for Tulsa-Faith.
