Less fortunate get FREE turkeys

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Hundreds of Oklahoma families will have a brighter Thanksgiving thanks to the Salvation Army. Tuesday morning, several hundred of the city's less fortunate lined up for a free holiday basket, complete with turkey and all the fixings. Recipient Wanda Morgan said, " It means a lot. It helps me and my handicapped sister out a lot. The Salvation Army has been a huge blessing to us." Cargill Meat Solutions donated many of the turkey products passed out to the needy.

The Pet Food pantry Of Oklahoma City even donated treats for the pets.

"Many times senior citizens share food with their pets, thus taking from their own plates so their pets can eat," said Salvation Army Director of Social Services, Ashley Jones.

While the Salvation Army would like to fill every request, organizers say the need is simply too great this year.

Sadly, they've been forced to reject about 30 percent of the requests for assistance.
