fEEDING hOPE & Letter Carriers' Food Drive

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2016 Feeding Hope and Letter Carriers’ Food Drive. On May 14, letter carriers in 198 Oklahoma cities helped stamp out hunger by collecting food donations on their mail routes. Additionally, more than 170 Oklahoma businesses donated money and canned foods during the month of May. In total, 848,150 pounds of food and more than $590,000 were raised for the Regional Food Bank, which will provide more than 3.6 million meals for hungry children, struggling seniors and hardworking families in central and western Oklahoma.
