(OKLAHOMA CITY) – May 27, 2016 – AutoZone has joined the fight against hunger in Oklahoma. Recently, the organization made a $1,000 donation to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. This donation will provide 5,000 meals for children, families and seniors struggling with hunger in Oklahoma.
The AutoZone Corporation gives back to communities across the U.S. Each year, employees nominate a charity of choice in their region to receive a $1,000 donation. This year, the Regional Food Bank was selected in the Oklahoman City region, which covers Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Northern Texas.
The Regional Food Bank is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Oklahoma. Last fiscal year, the nonprofit distributed 49.9 million pounds of food and products through a network of more than 1,250 charitable feeding programs and schools in 53 central and western Oklahoma counties. Each week, the organization provides enough food to feed more than 116,000 hungry Oklahomans. Yet, it is not enough.
Together, we can solve hunger. To learn more about the Regional Food Bank, or to make a tax-deductible donation, visit regionalfoodbank.org or call 405.600.3136.
