OKLAHOMA CITY -

Jesus House of Oklahoma City is seeking food items for its Easter Food Basket distribution event this Friday.

The organization is accepting the donation of hams, turkeys and traditional, non-perishable, holiday side items to be distributed to low income families to prepare their own Easter dinners.

The event takes place from 8 a.m. to noon, or while supplies last, on April 18.

"Of all of the holidays when we distribute holiday groceries, Easter is my favorite," said Jesus House President and CEO, Rick Denny. "Easter about the renewal of physical and spiritual life and comes with the springtime. The weather is warming up, the sun is shining and there is an attitude of hope!"
