Gracious Tree Partner Program - Helping those in need; that's our mission. But we can't do it alone. We're eager to work with local, regional, and national organizations to assist us in identifying areas and people in need. We're also looking for partners to help with the distribution to those that need it most.
If you would like to participate in the Gracious Tree Partner Program then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'd like to highlight some of our current partners.
Assistance League Tulsa | We are working with ALTulsa and their Operation School Bell® program to distribute jackets. Operation School Bell serves more than 2,000 elementary students a year from 14 area school districts, providing new clothing in a store type atmosphere at their headquarters at 11th & Harvard in Tulsa.
We've committed 100 fleece jackets to this wonderful program and organization.

Assistance in Health Care, Inc | We've partnered with AHC to support their mission of providing financial support to local cancer patients undergoing active treatment in the Tulsa area for non-medical expenses. Each month, AHC receives requests for support totaling an average of $33,000 from nearly 60 cancer patients. This organization has the honor of meeting approximately $16,000 of those requests every month and dreams to give more! Every dollar helps provide even more assistance for needs including mortgage payments, utilities, groceries, and child care.
A portion of every beanie sold will go to support AHC's mission.

Burroughs Elementary School | Our work with Assistance League has helped us identify Burroughs Elementary as a recipient for our donation program. Burroughs received 100 Gracious Tree jackets on October 27, 2016. Students were bussed from school to Assistance League Tulsa office to receive their jackets.
The vision of John Burroughs Elementary is to educate the whole child. We love this. Our vision is to warm them.
