OKLAHOMA CITY — Recently, 55 Cattle Company donated just over 375 pounds of beef to the Ronald McDonald House Charity in Oklahoma City, Okla. Owners of 55 Cattle Company, Kelly Boatwright and Chris Rowell delivered the beef recently. 55 Cattle Company, located near Marlow, Oklahoma, is a member of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association. The beef processing was donated by Freedom Processing also located in Marlow and owned by Kelly Boatwright.
The Ronald McDonald House Charity in Oklahoma City 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 of the comforts of home.
“We are proud to be a part of the Oklahoma Cattleman’s Association and an Oklahoma beef producer. It is an honor for 55 Cattle Company and Freedom Processing to donate the beef to the Ronald McDonald house,” said Kelly Boatwright a partner of 55 Cattle Co. and owner of Freedom Processing. “We are praying for the health and well-being of each family that is represented at the RMDH.”
