Your Holiday Gift Doubles to Help Twice as Many

As we head into the holidays, things look more different than ever. Masks, social distancing, sanitizing, no-touch deliveries ... all of our methods of obtaining and distributing food have changed dramatically during the pandemic.
But these things remain unchanged: Oklahoma is still the fifth hungriest state in the United States, and we remain fully committed to feeding our neighbors in need of food ... particularly during the holidays.
That’s why I’m so grateful for compassionate friends like you — and for this exciting opportunity to make your gift go twice as far.
Thanks to a $700,000 holiday matching gift, from presenting sponsor and the Cresap Family Foundation, your gift today will double in impact and help feed twice as many Oklahoma families facing hunger. Every dollar you give helps provide 8 meals — enough to feed two families!
Read through this edition of The Link to see how you’re helping people like Janet, Jamie and Mary. Then please send a special gift to be doubled by the Holiday Match Campaign.
Thank you and happy holidays to you and yours.

Chief Development Officer

Jamie at a NE OKC Distribution

We Will Have Food Today

When Jamie pulled her car up to a recent food distribution, you could see it in her eyes — the worry about how she was going to be able to feed her family.

She was wearing a mask due to COVID-19, but her eyes alone told the story of concern.
