WISH UPON A STAR HOLIDAY INITIATIVE

This holiday season YWCA Tulsa, Strong Tomorrows and Birth Equity Initiative will be hosting our 2nd Annual Wish Upon A Star Holiday Initiative November 13th – December 14th! Every year this initiative will provide gifts during the holiday season for disadvantaged and/or under-served teen mothers. Last year we gifted high need items to approximately 40 families. 

Annually we reach out to our staff, YWCA Tulsa members and our Tulsa community to adopt a family and/or donate gift items from the Wish Upon A Star wish list. The wish list contains high need items that will be gifted to teen mother’s during this holiday season.
