(OKLAHOMA CITY) – (March 7, 2018) – The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma invites young professionals to submit applications for the nonprofit’s Leadership Council. The Leadership Council connects young professionals interested in getting involved in their community and state through engagement with the Regional Food Bank. These dedicated individuals, aged 24 to 35, volunteer one year of their time and creativity to raise awareness about the issue of hunger and increase the visibility of the Regional Food Bank and its mission of “Fighting Hunger…Feeding Hope” in Oklahoma.
“If you’re looking for a way to connect and create impact, this group is a brilliant place to start,” said Morgan Brammer, director of Oklahoma recruitment and campus experience for the University of Oklahoma and a Leadership Class III member. “It has given me a real platform to fuse what I do for work eight hours every day to the work the Regional Food Bank has done for the past 40 years in the state of Oklahoma. They are breaking barriers, educating others and removing stigmas associated with hunger daily – and that is something I can truly get behind.”
Leadership Council members receive special access to volunteer opportunities, networking events and social events, as well as educational and informational programs designed to appeal to Oklahoma’s active young professionals in the community. Whether volunteering at the Regional Food Bank or passionately sharing the message of how to fight hunger, Leadership Council members bring about positive change in our community for a lifetime to come.
Together, we can solve hunger. To apply for the Leadership Council, visit www.regionalfoodbank.org/leadershipcouncil. Applications are due before 5 p.m. on May 1, 2018. Members will be notified about acceptance by June 5. For more information, contact Kendra Loper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
