These Donations Will Help Feed Hungry Oklahomans This Winter
APMEX.com, a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma for their 2017 Holiday Match Campaign. From November 15 through January 15, all donations were matched up to $600,000 by Regional Food Bank partners, including APMEX.com. These donations will help feed hungry Oklahomans this winter. Through the incredible generosity of our neighbors, the Regional Food Bank was able to raise more than $4.2 million, which totals more than 21 million meals, in a short 61 days.
“We are honored to be able to work with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma once again in the Holiday Match Campaign,” APMEX.com Founder and President Scott Thomas said. “Each year, so many families struggle to make ends meet and we are humbled to be able to help them. The success of this campaign was astounding, but we know we can’t stop here. The need is year-round and I encourage all to continue giving back to those who need it most.”
Service is a core value at APMEX, but it’s not just something that is said, it’s something that is practiced every day. Thomas grew up knowing hunger and it is from those beginnings where APMEX’s passion to help others with the same need began. The Regional Food Bank is the perfect partner for APMEX to help those in need of food assistance. For these reasons, APMEX adopted the Regional Food Bank as their primary charity.
“We are grateful for APMEX’s continued support and commitment to end hunger in Oklahoma,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “Food has the power to transform lives. Donations raised through the Holiday Match campaign give our neighbors the food they need to thrive. You may never see their faces or hear their voices, but I can assure you that your support makes all the difference.”
Oklahoma continues to be one of the hungriest states in the nation. In 2017, the Regional Food Bank was able to provide more than 43.4 million meals to hungry Oklahomans but the need for assistance continues to grow.
