Oklahoma Cattlemen Join Together to Benefit the Tulsa Ronald McDonald House

Members from the Oklahoma Cattlemen’ Association joined together to donate over 800 pounds of beef to the Ronald McDonald House Charity in Tulsa, Okla. The effort started by Russell Boles, Watson, Okla., donating a steer to benefit the charity. From there Watson Farms Meat Processing in Council Hill, Okla., donated the processing. A result of joining together, the two were able to provide a freezer full of steaks and ground beef for families staying at the House.

Cowgirl Beef, owned and operated by Christina Farris, Ft. Cobb, Okla., also donated beef snack sticks to go in the grab-and-go snack area of the House. The snack sticks are a convenient way to eat beef and stay full for families on the go between meals.  

The Ronald McDonald House Charity in Tulsa allows families with sick children to stay together and near the medical care they need. Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it almost too much to bear. The Houses offer all the comforts of home. 

“The Ronald McDonald House provides incredible assistance to families going through some really challenging times. I appreciate Watson Farms help to make sure these families can enjoy the comforts of a meal based around beef,” Boles said.

Because cattlemen care, OCA is helping coordinate beef donations to the OKC and Tulsa Ronald McDonald Houses.  Each Ronald McDonald House uses 2-3 beefs per year.
