Citywide Coat Drive to Benefit Area’s Homeless Population

Tulsa Oilers Giving Free Tickets with Donation

With cold weather approaching, the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless announced today that T-Town Trolley, Tulsa Oilers and e2  are teaming up for a one-day, citywide coat drive on Friday, Nov. 27 to benefit the area’s homeless population.

“We see about 400 people each day – men, women and children – so we have a tremendous need for coats of all sizes,” said Hallie Green, development director at the Day Center. “Hoodies, jackets, heavy winter coats… anything that can be layered. We can use it all.”

The trolley will stop at several locations around Tulsa throughout the day and end up at the BOK Center in time for that night’s Oiler’s hockey game. People who donate a coat will get a free ticket to the hockey game.

The trolley will stop at four locations across Tulsa area:

  • 10 a.m. Downtown: McNellie’s, 409 E. 1st Street
  • 1 p.m. Brookside: Leon’s, 3301 S. Peoria Ave.
  • 3 p.m. Jenks:  Camille’s, 9637 S. Riverside Parkway
  • 5:30 p.m. Oiler’s Game:  BOK Center Downtown Tulsa

For more information call Tom Droege at 599-0029 or email tom@rexpr.com or Gina Holloway with E2 Worldwide Events 935-5656.

Founded in 1985, the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless provides a safe, healthy environment for the homeless and opportunities for these individuals to achieve self-sufficiency. The center provided care for 11,419 individuals in 2008. For more information about the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless, visit the Web site at www.tulsadaycenter.org

Help The Homeless

This time, it’s OK to leave your coat behind on the trolley.

T-Town Trolley and Tulsa Oilers have teamed to help the Day Center for the Homeless with a coat drive on Friday.

A trolley will stop from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at McNellie’s, collecting coats to take to the center. Then, it moves to Camille’s at 96th Street and Riverside Drive, where it will collect coats from 2 to 5 p.m.

Blake Lund, who owns the trolley service, has “a passion for the homeless,” he said. So when Gina Holloway, who does marketing consulting for him, saw something about the Day Center on KTUL, channel 8’s morning show, they decided to lend a hand — and as many coats as possible.

During the collections, members of the Oilers, as well as the team mascot and some of the Oilers Ice Girls will be onboard signing autographs and giving away one ticket for the Oilers’ Saturday game per donation, Lund said.

The center is looking for all sizes of new and gently used coats, particularly adult outerwear, said Hallie Green, the center’s development director.

“Really, anything that can be layered,” Green said of the center’s needs. “Hoodies, jackets, heavy winter coats — we’ll take it all.” They see about 400 people each day in all shapes and sizes, so every article of clothing helps.

The center also needs hats, gloves, scarves, blankets and towels, Green said.
