Last year, Earl's Rib Palace, Allegiance Credit Union and TEEM were able to provide warm clothing for more than 450 Oklahomans.
“On any given night, there are over 1,000 homeless people in Oklahoma City, and as the winter weather intensifies many people will be left without the clothing necessary to be protected against the conditions,” Michael Jackson, TEEM administrative executive director and social worker, said.
“Warm clothing serves as a wellness resource and can be the difference between whether a students gets a job or not. Operation Winter Warmth can single-handedly address and eliminate this specific warm clothing issue for all of our students and their families.”
Other partners include Interbank, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Beatnix Cafe, The Yoga Nest, Midstream Energy, Kamp's 1910 and Top Hat Talent.
