The Wish List for Fall, 2013

Wish List for the Welcome Table Community Center and for the Welcome Table KitchenGardenPark and Orchard.

For both, we above all need your prayers, thoughts, and to be our ambassadors spreading the news about us to others, especially other groups who might be able to help or to grant giving foundations.

Major Wish List: Foundation support to help us, and potential other partners, buy the closed Cherokee School on North Peoria, from the Tulsa Schools to grow our programs in a wonderful ready to use facility, and to grow our community. Call me for details. 918-691-3223....Also a major contribution to help us, after four years of amazing service with an all volunteer group, to be able to fund part time or full time positions: Executive Director, Assistant, Volunteer Coordinator, Bldg and Grounds Keeper...$60,000 to pay off our mortgage on the building...$3,000 to purchase property south of us to expand for parking and use....Money to help us purchase property to the east of our GardenPark where more abandoned houses and neglected properties remain.

Perhaps your organization would like to become an institutional partner with us...
