Oklahoma Trial Lawyers make Thanksgiving special by donating thousands of turkeys
It's an annual tradition that's grown larger each year. The Oklahoma Trial Lawyers donated $100,000 to purchase turkeys for the 6th Annual Day of Kindness. The event kicked off today by donating thousands of turkeys to Oklahoma families.
Today's event, held in the parking lot of McIntyre Law at 8601 S. Western Ave., began at 10:00 a.m. It's expected to last until 1:00 p.m., or until all the turkeys are handed out.
The event is a combined effort of the Oklahoma Association for Justice (formerly known as the Oklahoma Trial Lawyers Association), Oklahoma Regional Food Bank, Lawyers Fighting Hunger and over 100 Oklahoma trial lawyers and law firms.
Noble McIntyre, of McIntyre Law, has helped organize the event since the beginning. McIntyre said, "The combined financial efforts of so many Oklahoma plaintiff trial lawyers, with the physical resources of the Local 157 Oklahoma City fire fighters, allow us the opportunity to be of greater service to the Oklahomans most in need of a helping hand. We are proud that we are not only able to provide thousands of free drinks and hamburgers at each location on the day each event, but also free turkeys for thousands to take home to their families."
