12/11/2020 – Owasso VFW member Gary Prater wanted to do something to help the community and turned to fellow members of VFW Post 7180- Owasso to make it happen. He donated $750 of his own money to help get things started.
Today, he and fellow VFW post member Carroll Harris went shopping. They purchased 23 Turkeys and 20 Hams to bless the community this holiday season. Owasso Community Resources director Randy Cowling said these will be included in Christmas Baskets, which they will begin passing out over the next week.
It takes a village to help with the work being done at OCR. Cowling said that last month, Owasso Community Resources assisted 1,723 households with food, utility, rent assistance and Thanksgiving meals. This translates into approximately 6,500 individuals served in November.
