TULSA — TPS officials say nearly 400 guests gathered Friday for a free, traditional Thanksgiving meal at Street School.

Students, families, alumni, donors and members of the community came together to support Street School.

Officials say Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Deborah Gist and other elected officials volunteered to work the serving line.

Due to Street School replicating its program and families in need, officials say the event was moved to the Will Rogers United Methodist Church across from Street School where it has been held for the past 37 years in the gymnasium.

This event was funded 100 percent by donations, officials say. Muscogee (Creek) Nation Casinos, Oklahoma Joe's Barbeque, and many individual financial contributors made this event possible.
