Women in Oklahoma City who are deeply concerned about the needs of homeless and impoverished women and children will pledge to support rehabilitation, recreation and educational programs through City Rescue Mission’s annual Hearts of Hope Tea on Feb. 23.
The event will begin at 11:45 a.m. at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Last year, more than $155,400 was raised during the Hearts of Hope Tea. This year’s goal is $160,000 and proceeds will be used to enhance the outdoor park area used by women and families staying at City Rescue Mission.
Ladies attending the event will enjoy lunch, learn about the mission’s services and hear how God has changed lives through the ministry. After the program, those in attendance will be given the opportunity to contribute to the outdoor enhancement project.
“We are so blessed by the women in our community who come together each year to support City Rescue Mission,” said Tom Jones, president & CEO of City Rescue Mission. “This group of ladies is dedicated to making the lives of the women and children living at the Mission brighter.”
