Oklahoma's needy are getting a helping hand at sites across the state on this Thanksgiving Day. From Enid to Tulsa and from Guymon to McAlester, agencies are opening their doors and offering turkey and all the trimmings.

Governor Keating and first lady Cathy Keating helped serve food at the Salvation Army in Oklahoma City, where officials expected to serve about 1,200 meals. The Salvation Army also was at work in Tulsa, where it offered free cell phone calls to those who showed up. At Finales restaurant in Tulsa, those less fortunate got to use nice china and real silverware as they ate a Thanksgiving breakfast. For the 14th year, the Knights of Columbus in Enid prepared about 300 meals for that city's needy residents.
