Donations for the Jesus House dinners, like many others in the metro, come from local sources.
“It comes from the community, and really that's what we're all about. That's how we're funded here,” Denny said. “It's about support and getting people to help us get behind people in the community.”
Jesus House has a similar effort planned for Dec. 24, when dinners with hams instead of turkeys will be handed out.
Interested donors can call 232-7164 or go to jesushouseokc.org.
Denny said it's easy to see what kind of effect the donations have when thankful smiles cross the faces of those who head home with a holiday meal for their family.
“This is definitely the most stressful time of year for us, but the reward at the end of the day for us is so great,” he said.
