The House FM listeners are joining together again this year to make Thanksgiving special for families in need this season. Listeners are encouraged to donate a frozen turkey tomorrow for the local Salvation Army at the Altus Wal-Mart location, 2500 N. Main in Altus. The Saturday, Nov. 7 event to help feed the hungry this holiday season will take place between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
The Altus Salvation Army’s Major Ben Walters stated, “There is no way to meet the needs of all who need help without the help of others. Without all of these people joining together and donating, we could not impact as many families.”
Last year, 464 turkeys were provided by the stations’ listeners in Oklahoma and Kansas. It’s hoped that the donations this year surpasses those numbers. Along with a Christmas CD, everyone donating will receive one entry per turkey for an iPad mini®. More information about this event is available at TheHouseFM.com.
