Davis said she posted on Facebook, the need for help, and true to the Oklahoma standard, the community showed up.

”The volunteer list immediately filled up,” Davis said. “So, we will have enough volunteers for Thanksgiving. But come on by and say hi. If nothing else, stop by and say hi. Give me my Thanksgiving hug.”

All morning, they have been setting up tables, cutting up vegetables and prepping the dressing.

And some other volunteers dropped off multiple canned goods, potatoes and anything else you would see a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

”It will be baked chicken, turkey, green beans, yams, dressing, and dinner rolls and desserts,” Davis said.
