TCBF COMMUNITY OUTREACH

The TCBF Community Outreach Committee provides volunteer lawyers to charitable or civic organizations and supports community projects including Habitat for Humanity and The Day Center for the Homeless. Annual service projects include “Santa Brings a Law Suit,” a professional clothing drive, and the “Welcome Home Project,” a household item drive benefiting the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless helps find safe, affordable housing for the homeless in our community. This is an opportunity to provide assistance and support to families and individuals making the transition from the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless to their own homes or apartments. The Community Outreach Committee helps provide each new household with basic items for their new home.


 

Santa Brings a Law Suit

SantaSuitOnce again, the Tulsa County Bar Foundation, in conjunction with the TCBA, is gearing up for its ever-popular “Santa Brings a Law Suit” clothing drive. The drive annually provides business attire to men and women in need so they may make the best possible impression during a critical job interview or their first day of work. The legal community is particularly well “suited” for this task as so many of us wear professional attire every day. If you have professional or business casual clothes for men or women – suits, dresses, skirts, blouses, dress pants and shirts, ties, belts, shoes, etc. – please begin to put them aside for the benefit of needy and deserving Tulsans.

THIS YEAR’S DRIVE  RUNS THROUGH DECEMBER 13, 2018

Clothing can be dropped off at the locations listed below during regular business hours. All items should be clean, on hangers and ready to wear. At the conclusion of this year’s drive, the TCBF’s Community Outreach Committee will deliver the clothing to Tulsa area charitable organizations, including the Salvation Army, John 3:16 Mission, and Women in Recovery, who truly appreciate and utilize your donation of professional attire to better our community. Your generosity is greatly appreciated (and tax deductible.) Tax receipts will be made available if you leave your name, mailing address, and a general description of the items donated at the time you drop off your donations. Let’s have a wonderful holiday season, and build on the past success of this drive by cleaning out our closets and helping Tulsans get back to work!
