Food for Kids Match Doubles Your Impact

It’s been a crazy few months for us here at the food bank, and I know the COVID-19 pandemic has affected your life, too.

But I have some great news to share. Right now, you can make an even bigger impact thanks to the Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma, Dolese Bros. Co., David Gorham, David and Lezlie Hudiburg and Mark and Beth Brewer who have teamed up to match all gifts up to a total of $155,000 for our Food for Kids Match Campaign.

As you read through this edition of The Link, I hope you’re encouraged by the incredible difference you make and inspired to continue your support while it can go twice as far. Thank you for all you do!

Thank you!
