TULSA, Okla. -

A Tulsa church gave away millions of dollars to people and organizations in need last weekend. 

Buying out an entire sneaker store to go to a Tulsa boys' home was just part of $3.5 million Transformation Church gave out this weekend to people in need.

$65,000 worth of shoes were all stacked up at Silhouette Sneakers and Art and they're all sold.

"I didn't believe him. I was like, am I being punked?" said Venita Cooper.

Store owner Venita Cooper said Pastor Mike Todd from Transformation Church stopped by to purchase all 186 pairs of high-end sneakers.

"We're now giving them to the Tulsa boys home to take exclusive shoes and give them to people that may not ever have the chance to own something like that," said Todd.

All that generosity was just a sliver of the church's good deeds. They handed out $3.5 million.

Todd said they bought homes and cars for people, paid off student loans, gave money to sex trafficking and addiction victims, helped churches in need and so much more.

"This year was more imperative in 2020 to be the hands and feet of Jesus," he said.

As Cooper stares at her empty shelves, she said it inspires her to continue the spirit of giving.

"We feel so lucky to be one of those organizations and we're trying to figure out how to give back," she said.

For Christmas this year, deserving kids will be rocking their dream kicks, thanks to people who support the church from all over the world.

"It was the greatest day of our church history," Todd said.
