18TH  Annual “Thanksgiving for Friends Food Pantry”

Thank you Scotty Irani for starting this tradition* Robert Painter & Aly Branstetter for keeping this going!!

This Thanksgiving/Christmas, we are looking at the challenging prospect of having to purchase and make up over 1000 Thanksgiving meals ($7,000.00) and 2,000 presents for Christmas($15,000.00-most are adopted from our angel trees) . That is an expensive and time-consuming task but we are fully committed every year to providing food baskets/presents to all of our clients!  To donate just go to our webpage www.otheroptionsokc.org

Facebook Page’s: * Other Options, Inc.   Friends Food Pantry or * Cookie’s Thanksgiving

“We need your help,” as it is a huge undertaking but one we have done for over 18 years/Thanksgiving, 26 years/Christmas.  On Thanksgiving Day volunteers will deliver a full Homemade Holiday Meal for every client that requests one to be delivered which is approximately 1000 meals.     It takes 3 days prior to prep and pack all the meals.   We are still needing around 50 hams, 10 turkeys, but most of all donations! The bulk of our product we order through Ben E Keith although they donate a portion of the order we still have to pay for some.

If you can help, we will need food at least a week prior to Thanksgiving or monetary donations can be made anytime.

Checks can be made payable to Other Options, Inc. please in memo put Thanksgiving/Christmas, and both are tax deductible.

WHAT WE CAN’T DO ALONE WE CAN DO TOGETHER!

Thank you for all your help, now and in the past. Peace and happy thoughts to you.
