A BIG THANK YOU TO OKLAHOMA CHAPTERS!
In Chapter X’s endeavor to save pull tabs for the Ronald McDonald House, our fellow Chapters came together to help us.
Tammy Burns and her granddaughter, Makenna, accepting pull tabs by Chapter X members to be contributed to the Ronald McDonald House in Oklahoma City. Makenna was born premature and her mother stayed at the House. Chapter X will be continuing collecting the pull tabs to help the Burns family in their endeavor in paying back for the help they received when Makenna was born.
This is the house
that provides the home,
that cooks the meals,
that sleeps the people,
that dries the tears.
"The House That Love Built,"
Chapter X members traveled to OKC to deliver pull tabs to the Ronald McDonald House. Curtis Burns arranged
a tour of of both buildings for our members.
Chapter X delivered almost 100 pounds of pull tabs, that's almost $5,000.00 for the Ronald McDonald house! Thank you Chapter X members for working so hard to collect. Let's do it again next year! Save those tabs!
Chapter X recieved a thank you note from GWRRA North Carolina District thanking our Oklahoma District for the $1812.00 donated by chapter members. Oklahoma Diretors collected the money to be sent to North Carolina and distrributed as needed for chapters members that lost so many things in the 2018 flood. Thank you OK chapter members for being so generous!!
Ten Chapter Members donated their time to help decorate soldiers graves. Many people laid live evergreen Balsam wreaths at the graves of 1,300 servicemen buried at Fairlawn.
Curtis Burns played bagpipes at the Wreaths Across America Remembrance Service.
Chapter X is also collecting unused toiletries from motel stays to donate to the Women Domestic Violence Shelter.
Once again we delivered pull tabs to The Ronald McDonald House Charities. We donated 7-5 gallon buckets this year. Thank you again Chapter X and other chapters around the state for donating pull tabs to us so that we could deliver them and hopefully make someone elses life a little easier.
