McIntyre Law to distribute 5,000 donated turkeys to Oklahoma families
WHAT: For the seventh year in a row, McIntyre Law will be coordinating distribution of over 25 tons of turkey (or 5,000 turkeys) to families who are struggling with hunger. The 7th Annual Day of Kindness is a partnership of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Association for Justice, of which Noble McIntyre is a past president.
This group of lawyers – members of the Oklahoma Association For Justice (OAJ) - contributed to “Lawyers Fighting Hunger” in an effort to raise more than $80,000 this year to provide turkeys to families in need in Oklahoma City, Norman, El Reno, Mustang and Tulsa.
Turkeys will be given out one per family on a first-come, first-served basis until they are gone. There will be free hamburgers, hot dogs, bottled water and soda available to all who attend the giveaway event.
WHY: One in six Oklahomans has insufficient access to food, which makes Oklahoma one of the hungriest states in the nation. That means that wintertime presents an extra set of challenges to many Oklahomans, who often have to choose between food and utilities during the coldest months of the year. 72 percent of the Oklahoma Food Bank’s clients are in this situation, which is why the team at McIntyre Law feels the urgency and importance of serving a hot, satisfying, nutritious holiday meal to those who can use it most.
Oklahoma City: Nov. 17th, begins at 10 a.m.; McIntyre Law offices, 8601 S. Western Ave.
Norman: Nov. 18th, begins at 11 a.m. – ends at Noon Bernstein Law Office, 104 W. Gray St.
Tulsa: Nov. 19th, begins at 11 a.m.; Iron Gate Ministries, 501 S. Cincinnati Ave. (turkeys and groceries distributed to pre-registered recipients)
