Tulsa Dream Center Hosts Biggest Annual Toy Drive

The Tulsa Dream Center makes the dreams of underprivileged families in Tulsa come true. The organization that provides support and empowerment to people who live in northern Tulsa has organized its 20th annual toy drive Saturday, December 18.

the Dream center noted that of all of its donation and volunteer events, the toy drive is by far the most important. Cars full of people carrying gifts lined up from about 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, December 18, with lines spanning 10 city blocks.

Pastor Tim Newton noted that although the Covid19 pandemic has changed the event, supporters still welcome the opportunity to support families and children in Tulsa. “This is our second year doing a drive-thru,” Newton said. “The way we do it today, but we’re just happy to be here and bless so many people.”

According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Tulsa Dream Center is designated as a EnVision Center, a “centralized hub that provides people with the resources and support they need to excel”. There are only three such EnVision centers in the state of Oklahoma.

The Tulsa Dream Center was founded in 1999 by Pastor Billy Jo Daugherty of Victory Christian Church. The mission of the Dream Center is to empower people living in poverty through local programs, with results-based solutions for the myriad of problems facing marginalized communities.
