Kendall Whittier Neighborhood

On this edition of our show, we learn all about Kendall Whittier, Incorporated, or KWI, which is a neighborhood-minded and long-running nonprofit now marking its 50th Anniversary. KWI is, per its website, "a home-grown organization incorporating self-sufficiency for our neighbors through food security, nutritional health, and well-being." KWI -- the only food pantry in the Tulsa area that actually delivers to its participants' doorsteps -- will host an event tonight (Thursday the 7th) in celebartion of its Golden Anniversary.

A ceremony is held today to celebrate the completion of West Park in the Kendall Whittier neighborhood. The project is part of a plan to revitalize the area just west of Tulsa University. It includes a mix of new residential and office uses, and improvements to the neighborhood park. One example of the new residents is Claire Theriot who is a pre-school teacher at the nearby EduCare Center. She and her three year old son have recently moved into a  new apartment just across the street from her work and the new park.
