ENID, Okla. —
Enid Salvation Army’s annual program to provide Thanksgiving dinner to needy families will get a boost Saturday.
Representatives of Ponca City’s 89.7 FM will be on hand 2-3 p.m. Saturday giving CDs to anyone who donates a turkey for the Thanksgiving dinner program.
Salvation Army Maj. John Dancer said the Tunes for Turkeys program is part of a friendly competition among Salvation Army branches in the region.
All donated turkeys will be given to needy families. The more donated turkeys, the more dinner boxes the agency can provide, Dancer said.
“That’s why we need people to come out for Tunes for Turkeys,” Dancer said. “The more turkeys we can give away, the better.”
Salvation Army will accept donations of other Thanksgiving-related food items as well. Dancer said items such as stuffing mix, instant potatoes and green beans are included in the Thanksgiving dinner boxes.
In addition, Salvation Army still is accepting applications from families who want a food box. Those who want to get on the list for delivery should call by Nov. 12.
“We will still feed lunch at noon on Thanksgiving,” Dancer said. “If anybody needs a Thanksgiving, they just need to call the office and talk to us.”
Salvation Army’s phone number is 237-1910.
