Adopt a Family for Thanksgiving

We all absolutely love Thanks­giv­ing Din­ner - the great food, the fam­ily, the fun!

But this isn’t always the case for some of our neigh­bors. For some families, the abil­ity to pay for a Thanks­giv­ing meal with all the trim­mings makes it a stressful Holiday. We are preparing to help families who this year will be unable to enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner with their family due to unexpected financial hardships. Last year, OCR supporters donated enough Thanks­giv­ing baskets to feed 287 fam­i­lies in our community.

How can you help? Here’s how it works. If you’d like to adopt a fam­ily for Thanks­giv­ing, just call OCR at 918-272-4969 and let us know how many families you would like to adopt. The estimated value per family is $45.  Please CALL US TO register your basket(s) with OCR by MONDAY, Oct. 29th. 
If you would prefer to make a donation to cover the minimum contents, please make checks payable to OCR in the amount of $45.00  or click here to make a donation online.

You will need to put the following items, in a plastic laundry basket or tote:
