TULSA, OK -- A truckload of 1,000 frozen turkeys was delivered Tuesday morning to the Salvation Army in Tulsa.

The turkeys were donated by casino employees and Cherokee Nation Entertainment. 

In all, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is donating 3,000 turkeys this season. 

Some of those turkeys are headed to other northeastern Oklahoma agencies and to the Oklahoma City food bank.

And hundreds of casino employees are giving their employer's gift back to the community.
