Route 66 Walk to Help the Homeless

  • Homelessness is a serious problem in Green Country.  Each night The Salvation Army Center of  Hope provides shelter to over 325 of our neighbors, including 50 children. The Center of Hope serves approximately 800 nourishing meals a day to those who are in need.

    Route 66 Walk to Help the Homeless

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

    You can join Captain Ken Chapman and friends to walk  66 miles on Historic Route 66 in 66 hours to raise Awareness, Education and Funds to help the homeless.  The walk will begin in Claremore, through Tulsa to Sapulpa and returning to Downtown Tulsa. Captain Chapman will sleep each night in a cardboard box, just as many of our homeless do.  The walk ends on Saturday, December 2 at 6 pm with a celebration at The Salvation Army Center of Hope.

    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.
