Thanksgiving Day in the City
November 22, 2018 @ 7:15 am - 2:00 pm
Thank you for your interest in Thanksgiving Day in the City. The meals available for this year’s event have been committed, and the volunteer positions have been filled.
On Thanksgiving Day, we will deliver meals to locations throughout Edmond, Oklahoma City, and the surrounding area.
If you are receiving a meal from us, we are looking forward to the opportunity to serve you, and you should expect to receive your meal between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. If your plans change, please be sure to call us at 405-771-0773.
If you are volunteering to help with the meal, thank you for your generosity. We have had an amazing response from volunteers. Here are a few things you need to know:
Those who volunteered to provide pies should bring the uncut pies to the Gaylord University Center at Oklahoma Christian on Wednesday between 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Those of you who have volunteered to help cook and assemble the meals will be asked to arrive at the Gaylord University Center at Oklahoma Christian University at 7:15 a.m. or 8:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning, depending on your assignment. Your requested arrival time will be communicated to you on Tuesday, November 20, via email. While most of you will work at OC, some of you may be asked to work in a kitchen at MRCC. Please bring a hat or wear your hair back.
Those who volunteered to deliver meals will be assigned a delivery time on Tuesday, and you will receive another email with that information. Delivery times will be scheduled for you to pick up your meals at Oklahoma Christian between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Generally, the earlier times will be deliveries to more distant locations in the metro area, while later times will be closer to OC. If you have a large ice chest to transport the meals, please bring it with you. If not, we will provide bags that you can use.
For those of you who are planning to stay for the volunteer lunch, we should be eating by 1:00 p.m or 1:30 p.m., after all the deliveries have been made and volunteers have returned. If you are staying for lunch, you might consider bringing a fun family game or be ready for some good conversation in case you finish your job early.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
