The holiday season is here, and gift giving is on our minds more than ever. Here at Fulmer Sill, we believe in giving back to our local community. This year we have decided to work hand in hand with Oklahoma City’s fight to end homelessness.
The Homeless Alliance works to end long-term homelessness in Oklahoma City. Collaborating with the community, filling gaps in homeless services, and bringing nationally recognized practices to the community all help to build a system that is warm-hearted and efficient. This organization works to house those in need, including veterans, large families, and those who are chronically homeless. In their buildings, they offer day shelters to provide for showers, food, technology use, and health benefits.
This year, The Homeless Alliance is working to give to the less fortunate and homeless for the holidays. In their fundraising event, Stockings of Joy, they are welcoming volunteers and donations to help spread a little joy. They are determined to gather much-needed donations in order to provide hygiene kits, as well as small toys and plush items to those in need in Oklahoma City. No matter the age, all people deserve to feel the love, joy, and peace of this holiday season. We hope to gather those of our Fulmer Sill community to help contribute to the happiness that the homeless deserve.
