Visit our new home

I’m so excited to share this happy news! We have moved and it is your turn to see our great new facilities. Technically, they are ours but they also really belong to the Tulsa community, which is why you are invited to join us as we unveil our new space.  Come for the dedication and lift up a prayer for the long term success of this facility or come by for an open house and tour our offices and warehouses designed for toys, food and disaster materials!
When:  Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Where: Tulsa Area Command
            924 S. Hudson Ave.
            Tulsa, OK 74112
Time:  12:45 p.m. - Dedication of Facilities
            1:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m. - Open House
Tulsa Area Command was previously located downtown at 16th & Main and occupied an 11,000 sq. ft. office building.  Each Christmas season, we spent $42,000 renting warehouse space and securing donated space of at least 50,000 sq. ft. to house our extensive Christmas programs. Our new 88,000 sq. ft. complex was purchased for $1.1 million as we sold our building at 16th & Main for $975,000; an advantageous swap considering the addition of 77,000 sq. ft.  Our new facility provides an annual savings from our budget previously used for warehouse rental while providing a permanent place for our community to visit for Christmas and disaster assistance. The office renovation project was funded through Board Restricted Capital Building Trusts held from planned giving bequests.  * All monies raised in Tulsa stay in Tulsa for our programs and services.
