The 5th annual Harlan Ford Toy Drive is underway, and donations are being accepted. As you do your holiday shopping, include a gift to be donated to the Okmulgee County DHS foster children. The Okmulgee Fraternal Order of Police are assisting in the effort. Last year, six truck loads of toys were delivered, thanks to the community effort. Drop off locations include Harlan Ford, Jandebeur’s Motor Sports, Tavern 56, McIntosh Tumbling in Henryetta and The Ranch Bar and Grill located on Hwy. 75 north of Beggs. For those wishing to maintain social distancing, there is a dropoff truck on the outside of Harlan Ford where donations can be made during business hours. PATRICK FORD
