For The Salvation Army Christmas Distribution, 2,000 families will receive Angel Tree gifts, toiletry items and a Christmas meal. The centerpiece of the meal is delicious Christmas turkey, ham, roast or chicken.

We’ve been so blessed by generous donations from our Feed the Children, many friends, The Regional Food Bank and Sydney Frank Importing, but we are running short and some families run the risk of not being able to receive meat.

Our families and seniors are still in need of about 1,000 pieces of meat.

So, with humble hearts, we ask that our friends can spare $5, $10, $20 or however much your heart can give to help The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma make sure every family gets a meal on Christmas Day. Your donation can mean:

Turkey $12

Ham $10

Roasting Chicken $8

Please visit this link to make a donation online.

When you give online, please send an email to jeanean_castle@uss.salvationarmy.org so that we can make sure the funds are designated specifically to the Central Oklahoma Area Command Christmas Meat Drive.

Donors can also call 1-800-SAL-ARMY and request their donation to go purchase meat in Central Oklahoma as well.

You can also mail a check to:

The Salvation Army

Attn: Jeanean Castle / Christmas Meat

P. O. Box 2095

Oklahoma City, OK 73101

Again, we thank you for your continued support in this tough economy. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
