    Route 66 Walk to Help the Homeless

    Thursday, November 30 – Friday, December 1 – Saturday, December 2

    Captain Ken Chapman and friends to walked  66 miles on Historic Route 66 in 66 hours to raise Awareness, Education and Funds to help the homeless.  The walk began in Sapulpa, they walked through Tulsa to Claremore. Captain Chapman and friends slept out in cardboard boxes, just as many of our homeless do.

    Our goal is to raise funds for the Center of Hope programs designed to help those who are homeless reach self-reliance. The Center of Hope provides many programs with the aim to help people and families find self-sufficiency. We invite you to become a part of helping people out of homelessness in our community. There is still time to make a donation to help us reach our goal, donate here!

At the Center of Hope $66 provides a week of shelter for one person looking to escape the cold. Or just $66 can support a family by paying an overdue utility bill to avoid becoming homeless.
