TULSA, Okla. — Volunteers for John 3:16 Mission are working to distribute food baskets for Thanksgiving.

Dozens of volunteers assembled Monday morning for the Mission’s 20th year providing food for Tulsa families in need. Their goal is to provide more than 5,000 Thanksgiving meal kits for families in Tulsa. Each box contains a turkey and all the sides of a traditional meal. However, the staff faced some challenges this year.

Rev. Steve Whitaker told 2 News Oklahoma disruptions in the supply chain made some of the items harder to get.

“It’s been pretty difficult this year with increasing prices and inflation. It’s been difficult for a lot of our donors. A lot of our donors went out to try and find some of the items that we typically need and they weren’t able to get them for us,” Rev. Whittaker said.

John 3:16 is still seeking stuffing, cranberry sauce, and yams to complete their meal kits. If you would like to donate, you can drop off donations at their donation center at 506 N Cheyenne Ave in downtown Tulsa.
