OKLAHOMA CITY – Hundreds more Oklahomans will stay warm through this next predicted winter storm thanks to many generous residents Wednesday night.
NewsChannel 4 joined forces with Chesapeake Energy to bring you an evening of free festive fun while helping others at the same time.
We collected coats for Brad Edwards Warmth 4 Winter along with the Salvation Army at Chesapeake Wednesday night.
The young and young at heart checked if they were on Santa’s naughty or nice list, sipped hot cocoa, played in a bounce house and took in the beautiful lights along Western.
