Bringing resources together and creating a climate of change in some of Tulsa’s “toughest neighborhoods” were the goals of a gathering at the Guthrie Green on Tuesday evening.
Supporters of the Eugene Field and Kendall-Whittier neighborhoods joined representatives from several area organizations and foundations for a picnic at the downtown park.
The event was a chance to showcase Growing Together’s efforts to improve the two neighborhoods and celebrate its new partnerships with four national nonprofit organizations.
Growing Together is a community partnership supported by the Community Action Project of Tulsa County that is designed to bring organizations and residents together to help residents become self-sustainable by depending on one another for solutions that provide safe and supportive neighborhoods and schools.
