66ers Serve Up Meals at the Salvation Army

TULSA, Okla., November 22, 2012 – Yesterday on Thanksgiving Eve, the Tulsa 66ers took a moment to step back and be grateful for the blessings they’ve been given while having an opportunity to aid the Tulsa community.

The 66ers spent Wednesday evening serving meals to over 500 Tulsa citizens at the Salvation Army’s Center of Hope in downtown Tulsa. The Center of Hope feeds hundreds of homeless families and individuals each day while providing transitional housing to help individuals get back on their feet. With the start of the holiday season, the Salvation Army is entering one of its busiest months of the year.

Ten Tulsa players along with the 66ers coaching staff worked in two 50-minute shifts during the Center of Hope’s peak dinner hours. Half of the group served meals from behind the kitchen counter while other members of the team helped serve drinks and clean tables.

Many of the guests spent time interacting with the 66ers, from talking basketball to everyday conversations.

Wednesday’s event is just one of many ways that the 66ers strive to give back to the Tulsa community. Stay tuned to Tulsa66ers.com throughout the year to learn more about Tulsa’s commitment to the community.
