Quibids, Homeland partner to provide grocery shopping spree for two local families
Streamer- and balloon-clad shopping carts sped the aisles of a south Oklahoma City grocery store, May 10, as Quibids and Homeland partnered to make two families’ days a little brighter, and their grocery bills a little lighter.
As part of the Quibids Gives Back program, Quibids employee volunteers showed up at Homeland eager and ready to help two very deserving families on their $500 shopping sprees. And the fun didn’t stop there. Once the families made their way through the checkout lane, both families were presented an additional $250 Homeland gift card.
I’m honestly not sure who had a better time that day. Several Quibids volunteers played ball up and down the Homeland aisles with one of the family’s children and the others tallied, lifted, loaded and even carried groceries to the families’ cars!
I’m so grateful to have gotten to witness such an exciting event. It’s not always easy to decide where to spend your volunteer time or charitable dollars, but hunger is such a wide-spread need that has such a simple solution. If you haven’t been before, consider volunteering at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. It’s such an easy place to make a difference and see the impact you can make in our community.
The charitable support of the people and businesses in Oklahoma City always amazes me, and it makes me proud to call this city my home. I see that willingness to help time and again from companies big and small. And thanks to that same generosity from Quibids and Homeland on May 10, I know that at least two Oklahoma families with young children won’t have to face the pain of hunger tonight.
