Gifts of Hope 2018

Did you know more than 100 homeless teens and young adults will visit Youth Services for our annual holiday party? Many will be visiting for the first time and won't have the opportunity to complete a custom wish list in advance.

 With your help, we will not turn away a single youth without a gift bag filled with essential items for life on the streets. Each bag also includes something fun to bring much-needed joy to their difficult lives. Please consider "adopting" one of these vulnerable young people and giving them the greatest gift of all -- Hope.

  You can complete a bag for one of these youth by selecting four items and 1 snack from the list below. Drop off your unwrapped gifts to Youth Services any time between today and Dec. 12. Mark your gifts as SOS Youth.

Items needed:

  • Small popup tent (one-person or two-person)

  • Adult cold-weather sleeping bag or warm/heavy blankets

  • Basic zip-up hoodies (assorted colors, male and female, in assorted sizes – including some plus sizes)

  • Basic winter coats (male and female, assorted sizes including plus sizes)

  • Backpacks

  • Bus passes (adult passes: 30-day, 10-day, or 7-ride EZ Passes: can be purchased from QT stores or Tulsa Transit station downtown)

Snacks Needed:

  • Hot Cheetos

  • Little Debbie’s

  • Taqis

  • Sour Patch Kids ( really candy of all types)
