The Tulsa Christian Ministers Alliance is in need of additional food to distribute to needy families so they can enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at home.
The Rev. W.R. Casey, president of the alliance, said the group is providing turkeys, hams and trimmings to families who have been identified by Tulsa Public Schools counselors as the 25 neediest families in each of 60 schools, in addition to families who called the city’s 211 helpline.
Others who have not preregistered to receive food but who are in need can call Casey at 918-951-7407 to see if any is still available.
The organization needs donations of turkeys, hams, chickens, potatoes, green beans, corn, stuffing, rolls, cranberry sauce, and macaroni and cheese, Casey said.
The food will be given to those who preregistered beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Booker T. Washington High School’s historical building, 1631 E. Woodrow Place.
Donations can be made at that site from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and all day Tuesday. Cash and checks will also be accepted. Anyone who wishes to donate but cannot be present at those times can call Casey on Sunday at 918-951-7407.
