Ascension St. John and CommunityCare Living United with the United Way

Posted on March 1, 2023.

Nearly 70 Ascension St. John and CommunityCare associates teamed up to support the Tulsa Area United Way’s Day of Caring on September 6, 2019. The Tulsa Area United Way “envisions a community working together to ensure that all of its members flourish and thrive. Similarly, both Ascension St. John and CommunityCare strive to serve Tulsans and Oklahomans, by providing our communities with excellent healthcare services and options,” explained Ascension St. John Foundation President and State Chief Advocacy Officer, Lucky Lamons, MCJ, MPA, MHR.

Through interior painting and cleaning, gardening, and the clearing of a playground recently destroyed by fire, volunteers helped the Tulsa Dream Center in North Tulsa. The Tulsa Dream Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to fulfilling their motto, “See a need, meet it. See a hurt, heal it,” by offering services to address both the immediate and long-term needs within the Tulsa community. Each year, Ascension St. John raises funds from associates in support of the many programs funded through United Way. Support is provided through elective Associate payroll deduction, t-shirt sales, Food Truck Tuesday events, donation cans set up in various locations, cook-off events, and “jeans days” hosted by various departments at Ascension St. John and CommunityCare. In 2019, Ascension St. John raised over $69,000 in contributions. Ascension St. John’s 2020 goal for the Tulsa Area United Way and Bartlesville Regional United Way is $75,000.
