Hundreds of Volunteers Help Support Families and Communities in the Tulsa Area Through Send Relief Serve Tour | Local News
Mike LeHew wanted to accomplish some modest goals this weekend.
The first initiative was to make a difference by committing to volunteer work in your community by picking up a paintbrush to help revamp a local school, then working with kids at a soccer camp.
The second was to complete the task while inspiring others with expressions of faith and love.
“We are just thrilled to love Metro Tulsa and not just with projects but also with sharing the gospel,” said LeHew, pastor of Church Inside Out, based in Sapulpa.
LeHew was one of 500 people representing local church groups and community organizations to participate in the Send Relief Serve tour. It’s a national effort that started on Friday in Tulsa and ended on Saturday.
The organization partners with local churches, schools and city leaders to create “the most transformative impact possible through various community building projects” such as roofing, painting, landscaping, improvement of schools and renovation of playgrounds.
Send Relief Serve Tour also takes place in Memphis, Tennessee, Meridian, Mississippi, Baltimore, Maryland and Charleston, South Carolina.
The work, explained, LeHew allows ordinary citizens to “meet the needs of others.”
