Community Service Team

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 most months of the year to participate in “done in a day” projects in a variety of different health related areas.  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. 


The committee meets in January to research and select projects. Chairmen are selected to coordinate planning for each event.  Members volunteer as they are available and small cash donations are made to the project.  The Service Team has provided 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!
