Food Pantry Virus Update & Response
The 2:20 Food Pantry pantry is continuing to serve our community but there are a few changes. We are doing a drive-through pantry on Saturdays, twice a month. We are able to serve residents between Sheridan-Yale, 21st-41st, along with church members, and those referred by Hoover Elementary or ACA.
We are not taking appointments at this time. People are encouraged to drive through between the hours of 9:00-11:00am on those Saturdays. People do not need to get out of their cars but can receive prepackaged groceries through the windows of their cars, and information will be obtained verbally. Our team is taking extra precautions to keep you safe.
Drive Through Pantry Open:
Next Dates: February 20, February 27
Food Bank Pick Up:
You can bring donations on any Sunday morning (basket upstairs), or you can just drive-and-drop your donations at the 2:20 Center between 9:00-11:00 on: TBA.
This month we need...
Paper Products (Kleenex tissue, paper towels,
toilet paper); Hand soaps / Lotions
Meals for Kids
A number of schools are giving free meals (that day’s lunch and the next day’s breakfast) to children on Mondays-Fridays. You can pick them up for your children (even if they don’t go to school there) as long as they are 18 & under. The nearest available school from Highland Park is Hoover Elementary (2327 S Darlington). Highland Park has been glad to support these efforts in some small, practical ways. Also, there are mobile drop-offs Mondays-Fridays, at Darlington Park (12:09pm), 27th & Sheridan (12:22pm), and Lakewood Apartments (12:29pm).
The 2:20 Center is home to our Food Pantry/Benevolence Ministry, and to Home Improvement Ministry, which is an excellent, Bible-based counseling service. Click here to go to their website.
(Below is more about the food pantry and our regular operation schedule - which doesn't all apply at this time.)
What: We desire to give people who need food or other emergency assistance a “hand-up”, so that they can be a help to others. We will meet with people individually, listen, and develop a plan. We may be able to help with groceries, cooking lessons, job and résumé training, and other needs.
Who: We can serve those who live in the area between 21st & 41st, and Sheridan & Yale, as well as HP families and those referred to us by Hoover Elementary. A photo ID, utility bill (within the past 2 months), and Social Security card will be required.
Where: The 2:20 Center is located at 5717 E 32nd St in Tulsa. It is directly south of our main building.
Why: The 2:20 Center is funded by Highland Park Christian Church, and works in partnership with the Eastern Oklahoma Community Food Bank. HP exists to help people Love God, Love Others, and Serve Together. Meeting the needs of those in our community is one of the main ways that we are able to pursue this vision. If you are interested in volunteering, please email at email@example.com.
Won’t: We do not provide clothing or furniture, and we do not have cash on hand. Needs that require a financial investment on our part will be limited to our resources and will go through a review process. To see a list of items you can donate, go here.
