As it continues to get colder, emergency shelters in the Tulsa area are filling up. Tulsa’s Channel 8, Junior League of Tulsa, and UniFirst have partnered for Mike’s Spread the Warmth Blanket Drive now through Jan. 31. Oklahoma is one of the poorest states in the country, with more than half of the state’s counties having an average income of at or below the federal poverty level leaving many ill-equipped this winter. Help keep Tulsa warm by donating your new or gently used blankets to any of the following locations:
