If the approaching holidays are leaving you feeling stretched this year and you don’t know how you’re going to manage a hearty holiday meal, there are plenty of resources out there to help.
If you are in need of assistance during the holidays, we’ve compiled a list of area soup kitchens and shelters that will be open. However, please call ahead to make sure that they are accepting new visitors and to find out specific holiday hours.
In case you missed it, McIntyre Law holds a Day of Kindness each year before Thanksgiving. We provide thousands of Thanksgiving turkeys and other items to Oklahoma families in need. If you missed it this year, be sure to check back with us next November so that you can enjoy this wonderful event.
