In September, Arvest Bank kicked off its 1 Million Meals initiative, which challenges bank associates, customers and communities to participate in fundraising efforts and make nonperishable food donations to fight hunger in the 90 communities that the bank serves. The two-month initiative will provide at least one million meals to those in need.
Tulsa area residents can help by dropping off nonperishable food items or purchasing a 1 Million Meals paper plate for $1 at any of the 36 Arvest branches throughout Tulsa and the surrounding communities during the initiative or by calling 866-952-9523 to contribute. Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for local, hungry families.
“Last year Arvest raised more than 1.2 million meals for people in our communities, and we are excited to do it again. This initiative allows members of our community to help feed their neighbors in need. Every dollar donated or food item contributed stays local. We have partnered with the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma as the recipient of donations in the Tulsa market and look forward to working with them throughout this effort,” says Kirk Hays, executive vice president of Arvest Tulsa.
