Barbecue for the World

The Tulsa Citadel Men's Club is hosting a barbecue to support the Salvation Army World Service Office (SAWSO) and it's life-changing programs across the globe.  The men will be cooking up ribs, brisket and chicken with cole slaw, baked beans and dessert! I believe this is the perfect dinner for a Friday night, when you just want to relax with family and enjoy a good meal without cooking!

The Club welcomes you to join them on the lawn and enjoy the meal and fellowship with friends and neighbors or they can box up your dinner(s) to go.  To pre-order your meals (preferred) call or email Captain Robbins before June 16: john_robbins@uss.salvationarmy.org or 851-0263.  

When?
June 18th starting at 5p.m.

Where is The Citadel?
3901 E. 28th St., Tulsa
Right behind Eisenhower/Tulsa School Board Building (31st & Harvard area)

How much is the dinner?
$7.00 for adults, $3.50 for children 10 and under.


What is SAWSO?
At present there are 50,000 indigenous Army officers, employees and professional staff working in developing countries. SAWSO assists these persons and local leaders to identify the root causes of their problems, formulate solutions, and develop the skills necessary to plan and sustain programs in their communities. In addition to specific program area training, SAWSO provides training in project planning and management, leadership and community development.

SAWSO also helps to provide material assistance, such as food and clothing, in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. In an effort to move these communities from relief to development, SAWSO promotes and supports longer term assistance, such as health services and income generation projects for those affected by disasters.

Since its inception, SAWSO has channeled more than $100 million in goods and services obtained through donations, contributions and government grants to developing countries around the world. These operations are directed by a board of trustees composed of senior leaders of The Salvation Army in the United States.
