Jesus House of Oklahoma City is seeking public support of its Easter outreach activities on Good Friday.
The organization seeks food items for its Easter Food Basket distribution event set for 8 a.m. to noon or while supplies last April 18.
Donations of hams, turkeys and traditional, non-perishable, holiday side items are needed to be distributed to low-income families to prepare their own Easter dinners.
“Of all of the holidays when we distribute holiday groceries, Easter is my favorite. Easter is about the renewal of physical and spiritual life and comes with the springtime,” said Rick Denney, Jesus House CEO and president.
“Jesus House is honored to be the choice of many generous people and outreach-minded churches and businesses in our community who want to help others in need celebrate Easter with their family and friends.”
Jesus House has served low-income and homeless people in Oklahoma City for more than 40 years, is accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability and is a member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions.
Food items needed for Easter food baskets include: frozen hams or turkeys, boxed stuffing mix, chicken broth, gravy mixes, instant mashed potatoes, canned vegetables, dessert mixes or canned fruit.
Donations may be dropped off at the Jesus House receiving desk at 1335 W Sheridan.
