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.
