OKLAHOMA CITY – As families in Oklahoma City are getting ready for the start of the school year, district leaders are busy organizing a fun event that will provide over $1 million in free resources to families.
Love OKC One Day is an event that unites 35 organizations and thousands of volunteers with the purpose of providing free resources for children, families and elderly residents who may be struggling.
Organizers say the event will provide groceries, health services, connections to community service agencies, lunch, haircuts, family portraits and activities for children at no cost while supplies last.
