ADA — Arvest Bank is embarking on an initiative to fight hunger in the more than 90 communities it serves. This week the bank kicked off a two month, bank-wide effort to provide one million meals or more to those in need.
The bank has pledged to raise the equivalent of one million meals through bank donations, in-branch fundraisers and non-perishable food drives to benefit area organizations fighting hunger. The initiative takes place in April and May, and culminates in June when donations are presented to recipient organizations.
During that time, all Arvest branches will participate in cash donation and non-perishable food drive efforts, among others, in order to provide the equivalent of one million meals to community organizations fighting hunger. The recipient organizations will be selected locally.
“In Ada we have teamed with Food for Kids (a partner of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma) and the Family Crisis Center to bring focus on the food needs of our community," said Yancy Spivey, president. "Working together we hope to make a positive difference for those that are so desperately in need.”
