TULSA, Okla. — Teach Not Punish (TNP) Family Resource Center, a nonprofit organization serving families and students with deficit social and academic skills, continues a partnership with Marine Toys for Tots this Christmas season.
In years past, Toys for Tots allowed TNP to collect toys from the Marine base after all of their applications were fulfilled. This year, Toys for Tots pre-approved TNP to collect applications directly and distribute to families in Tulsa County to improve access to community resources.
TNP will provide 2 to 3 toys for over 250 children during their Christmas Resource Event that will be held on Monday, December 23, 2019, from 9 am to 7 pm.
Due to an overwhelming response of over 100 applicants, TNP is currently seeking volunteers to support this service for the community.
Volunteers may sign up for this event by going to ?www.teachnotpunish.com?.
TNP serves children and their families annually, providing services across the Tulsa area for low-socioeconomic families and scholars with deficit social and academic skills. The organization also provides classroom management training and community engagement opportunities to educators and the community at large. The mission of the organization is to equip families by enhancing access to community resources and support families by providing resources to build resilience during adverse times, which can positively impact family function.
