PR group plans coat drive event
The Oklahoma City chapter of the Public Relations Society of America will hold a coat drive next week to support the Salvation Army. The event will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Rococo Northpark, 12252 N May Ave. Guests are encouraged to bring a gently used or new coat, or a suggested donation of $20 for the Salvation Army's Warmth for Winter program. Donors will receive one free drink ticket and there will be awards for the “tackiest Christmas sweater.”
Beef sought for meals program
Livestock producers are being asked to consider donating cattle for the Beef for Backpacks program, in collaboration with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Beef sticks supplied by program partners provide a valuable source of protein in the backpacks, which are handed to schoolchildren to supplement their weekend diets, the Oklahoma Farm Bureau said. Beef producers are asked to donate at least one animal per year. For information on how to donate, call 523-2307 or visit www.okfarmbureau.org.
