40 in 40 Lent Project

40 in 40 Lent Project

During Lent this year, the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection in Oklahoma City conducted a project called 40 in 40 to benefit the Oklahoma Foundation for developmentally disabled adults.  Member's of the congregation were asked to go through their homes, garages, sheds and closets to see if they could find something to donate each of the 40 days of Lent.  They will use these items to conduct garage sales throughout the year to help fund activities and needs of their clientele.  The response was outstanding! The OKFD picked up the donations twice using a box truck each time.  

Steve Ross, Executive Director of the OKFD, had these words to say,  We are tremendously grateful to be the recipient of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection '40 in 40’ Lenten project.  These donations will help fund services for the developmentally disabled adults we serve.  As a non-profit, our funding is never guaranteed.  Donations like this are a big part of allowing us to fulfill our mission to improve the quality of life for adults in central Oklahoma with specialized developmental needs by providing them with high-quality and transformative learning programs and services that include life skills training, recreational activities and socialization inclusion opportunities in a safe, caring and compassion-focused environment.  If you are interested in learning more about us visit www.okfd.org.
