OKLAHOMA CITY -

A group of lawyers donate 1,400 Easter hams to Oklahoma families in need.

McIntyre Law and Lawyers against Hunger teamed up with the Regional Food Bank to give out the hams on Wednesday morning.

The event drew a huge crowd with nearly 100 people waiting in line by 8:30 a.m. This is the first year for the group to hand out hams for Easter. The past three years, they've distributed turkeys in November.

"Over 100 different law firms throughout the state contributed funds for this past year's Thanksgiving event resulting in a fundraising effort that exceeded $80,000 which was utilized to purchase turkeys and food boxes for Oklahomans across the state," said Oklahoma City Attorney Noble McIntyre. "The Thanksgiving giveaway will always be our signature event but this year we wanted to do something to assist families at Easter as well.

McIntyre Law co-sponsored the event and provided free hamburgers and drinks to every person who attended.

The Oklahoma City Fire Department, members of the United States Air Force and the Oklahoma City Police Department helped with the event and the distribution of the hams.
