2021-2022 Projects

The Community Service Team was formed in 2015.  A small group of members who had interest in better fulfilling the Alliance mission of “assisting non-profit organizations that meet a health-related need in Oklahoma County” met to discuss giving a “hands on” approach to service.  While the Alliance had a twenty -five year history of raising funds through the Kitchen Tour and awarding thousands of dollars in annual grants, members had an interest in yet more community involvement.  The Community Service Team was born of a desire to combine direct service and member involvement. 

 

Since that date, Alliance members have gathered to participate in “done in a day” projects in a variety of different health related areas.  These projects allow Alliance members the chance to give their time while enjoying fellow Team members.  Some projects have been as small as working a shift at the Regional Food Bank, while others required planning and coordination, such as cooking and serving a meal at the OK Kid’s Corral.

A few of the Non-Profits that the Service Team has worked with in “done in a day” projects:

  • OK Kid’s Korral            

  • Regional Food Bank

  • Putnam City Schools            

  • Oklahoma City Zoo

  • Mother’s Milk              

  • Skyline Urban Ministries

  • Juvenile Diabetes Assn.        

  • Positive Tomorrows

  • Martha’s House            

  • Infant Crisis Services

  • Lottie House Mental Illness Day Center

 

The Service Team provides our members a wonderful way to interact with one another while organizing a way to give back to the community.    Please join in the fun by volunteering with in this very satisfying service opportunity!
