Does your Organization Need Volunteers?
Red, White, and True Blue Food Drive
Thanks to all of you in our TU family who have recently reported your volunteer hours for this past year. The documentation of the various locations and the number of hours volunteered in the Kendall-Whittier Neighborhood and throughout Tulsa and surrounding areas is astounding! The generousity of your time, talent and resources is humbling! We are truly making an impact in our community! Our work is not done, however, and we come to you now with a special request. The inventory of our neighborhood Emergency Food Pantry, operated by Kendall Whittier Inc., is running low. The pantry is struggling to meet the increased needs of families whose children typically eat breakfast and lunch at school during the school year, but now must be fed at home. Our friends at the pantry have reached out to True Blue Neighbors for help and we, in turn, are reaching out to you. We hope you will assist us with the Red, White and “True Blue” food drive during the month of July! The food pantry is especially in need of cereal and sources of protein. Please see the following list of items: Boxes of Cold Cereal Bags/Canisters of Oatmeal Canned Meats: tuna, chicken, spam, etc. Canned ravioli, spaghetti, beef stew, etc. Peanut Butter The True Blue Neighbors blue collection tubs will be placed in the following locations from July 1-31: Case Athletic Complex, Collins Hall, Gilcrease Museum, Helmerich Hall, John Rogers Hall, McFarlin Library, Physical Plant Office Monetary donations are also welcome. Please contact Kathy Shelton, email@example.com, for more information or stop by the True Blue Neighbors Volunteer Center, Room 2209 Sharp Chapel.

Bereavemnt Bear Program
Losing a loved one can be particularly difficult for children. To comfort them during this difficult transition, Hospice of Green Country volunteers use swatches of clothing items which belonged to their lost family member to create an outfit tor a teddy bear in their memory. The child can cuddle the bear while adjusting to the loss and keep it as a special memento. In just a few hours a month, you can send lasting comfort to a child who has lost a mother, father, grandparent, or loved one.
