Thank you guys so much!
What is it? The Tulsa Polar Plunge is an event for which Special Olympics Oklahoma raises money for its competitions. This is a great way to support our athletes and make sure they have a safe, fun time when they compete.
What can I do? In terms of service hours, you have two options: become a Plunger for 1 service hour OR service hours will be given for each increment of $10 you donate (1 for $10, 2 for $20, etc.)
To donate: https://www.mysook.org/TulsaPolarPlunge/Team/View/141480/Jenks-Project-Unify
To become a Plunger: you will need to go to mysook.org and register for the Polar Plunge. When you do, be sure to join our team (Jenks Project Unify), or it doesn’t count. The minimum cost to participate is $75, virtual or physical. You can pay that money directly or raise donations from your peers. At the Polar Plunge on February 27, 2021, come between 10am and 10:45am to get signed in. It starts at 11am, at which point each team will take turns jumping into cold water to show our support. If you do decide to come, please jump with us! Only Plungers will be allowed near the pool.
Below are details for tomorrow evening. This is a reminder for those who signed up to volunteer! Very important!
Mrs. Fouts (person in charge) can be reached at (918) 766-5536 if anyone has questions tomorrow.
When you arrive and head up the escalators, you should already find boxes of programs at each set of doors on either side of the arena.
Reminder: This year, we need our Key Club volunteers to get to the Mabee Center a little earlier than normal.
Please enter the Mabee Center through the west entrance (facing Walmart) with their IDs by 5:15pm.
IDs will be checked by security (who should also have a list of volunteer names).
The names of volunteers who signed up first are: Thank Khai, Cing Kim, Cing Guite, Lian Nuam, Maya Reeves, and Cing Niang. They have your name on a list that you are helping out and are counting on you!
Please divide the number of volunteers so that there are students passing out programs at each entrance along the top level. Some can be stations near the escalators, and some can be stations on the opposite side. Guests should be allowed to enter starting around 5:30pm.
Once everyone has taken their seats and it looks like no more programs need to be passed out, you are free to leave (around 7pm).
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (918) 766-5536 if you have any questions.

I have made previous posts about the Asbury Second Saturday service opportunity but I made one again so you don’t have to search for it. The Second Saturdays are still happening and the next one is this Saturday, April 13th and also on May 11th from 8:15-12:15. I will go ahead and post the information again in case you missed it last time!
Asbury United Methodist Church 2nd Saturday is a wonderful way to receive four hours of community service! Below is a description of how 2nd Saturday works:
- Guarantees 4 hours of community service (8:15am-12:15pm)
- Is free and easy
- You can bring friends and family (children 13 and younger must be accompanied by an adult)
- Has no advance registration (except for liability form signed by parents on first visit)
- Provides transportation to and from sites
- Allows you to choose where and how you serve—there are different service opportunities each week for places all over Tulsa!
2nd Saturday is easy and fun:
- Come to Asbury Venue (6910 S 101st E Ave, SE of Asbury’s Main Building, east of David’s Bridal) on the second Saturday of the month at 8:15am wearing work clothes.
- Registration is a simple liability form filled out by a parent on the first visit (do not need it filled out again for subsequent visits), or parents can go to the link at the bottom of this post to fill it out in advance.
- Pick a serving site from 5-10 options which vary each month. Opportunities commonly include: interior painting, nursing home visits, cleaning, gardening, minor repairs, neighborhood pickup, organizing, block parties, and food packaging. There are projects for all ages, outside and inside, easy and difficult.
- Get on a bus.
- Return to church by 12:15.

Come to the Kiwanis Trash Bash on May 11 from 8am-4pm! It is located northeast corner of 106th & Elm Streets this year.
We need teams of 2 working 2 hours shifts all day long. The goal is to collect money, direct traffic, and help unload large items if necessary. This is Kiwanis’ largest fundraiser and it is also used (in part) to provide scholarships for seniors in our club. It is also easy and really fun!
Last year we just talked to Kiwanis members, directed traffic, and collected money so it’s a very low-key service opportunity and a good chance to get to know the Kiwanis adults who help sponsor our club! (Key in Key Club stands for Kiwanis Educated Youth). They are an adult service organization that founded Key Club in 1925.
Date: May 11th
Time: 8am to 4pm (2 hour shifts)
Location: northeast corner of 106th & Elm Streets
