Several locals have donated to this year’s Project Santa initiative.
Project Santa is an annual partnership between the Tulsa World and The Salvation Army to help area families in need.
Throughout the holiday season, the World has been publishing the stories of some of the people who will benefit from donors’ generosity.
One story, “Skiatook man, family hope for comeback from cancer found after COVID-19,” spotlights Dale Cokeley, and his wife, Kellie, along with their four children, who faced financial uncertainty last year as the dad was being experimentally treated for multiple myeloma.
The family members say they’re in a more hopeful place now.
