One of the hallmarks of McIntyre Law is that we do more than just advocate for your legal needs. We’re also dedicated to our (and your) community.
If you’ve worked with McIntyre Law in the past, you know that we will represent your best interests any we can… whether your case is negligence from dangerous products, a vehicle accident, dog bite, slip and fall, medical malpractice, or a host of other harms.
But, we’re also passionate about helping those who are suffering from hunger. That’s why, for the seventh year in a row, McIntyre Law is coordinating distribution of over 25 tons of turkey (that’s 5,000 turkeys!) to families who could be hungry this Thanksgiving.
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is the state’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. They provide food to 116,000 people each week through schools and other entities. We’re partnering with the food bank, along with the Oklahoma Association for Justice, of which I am a past president, to bring these turkey dinners to those in need in our communities.
Lawyers Fighting Hunger is a group of Oklahoma attorneys that has joined with these fine organizations and, together, has raised $80,000 to provide turkeys to families in Oklahoma City, Norman, El Reno, Mustang and Tulsa.
Why is this so important?
Oklahoma is one of the hungriest states in the nation, with one in six people suffering from hunger. And, in the winter, it’s especially troublesome because lots of families are choosing between food and utilities that they need to keep them warm and safe during the coldest months of the year. That’s why it is so important to us that these families have a hot, satisfying, nutritious holiday meal.
