Those wanting to do good while shopping this year don’t have to wait long. The annual Care Card shopping event returns Oct. 23-Nov. 1, with proceeds benefiting Family and Children’s Services.
“Since March our mission has become more relevant, and we’ve provided 24/7 help to more than 9,400 people a month,” says Dee Harris, chief communications officer for Family and Children’s Services. “Mental health touches everyone, regardless of background. Purchasing a $60 Care Card is a great way for Tulsans to support Tulsa. Shoppers can support local businesses, provide hope to our most vulnerable citizens and save money on early holiday shopping. It’s a win-win-win.”
Cards can be purchased online for from many of the 175 participating merchants, who offer discounts from 10% to 20% for Care Card holders. Family and Children’s Services, Oklahoma’s largest behavioral health agency, receives 100% of the Care Card purchase price.
This year, many participating businesses have added an online shopping option, are accepting orders over the phone or are offering no-contact pickup. All shopping options are detailed at carecardok.com.
