OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – INTEGRIS Health and its employees have once again donated turkeys from their annual Turkey Toss to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

INTEGRIS Health traditionally hands out turkeys to their employees as a way of "giving thanks" for their hard work throughout the year. Many employees then "pay it forward" by donating their turkey back to the Regional Food Bank.

This year, more than 684 turkeys were donated and will be distributed to families struggling with hunger, providing the equivalent of 6,270 meals this winter.

This year alone, INTEGRIS and its employees have donated nearly 12,700 pounds of food through its Turkey Toss and Governor Mary Fallin’s Feeding Oklahoma Drive. More than 3,248 turkeys have been donated to the Regional Food Bank since INTEGRIS Health began the partnership in 2010.
