Bank’s Hunger Initiative Provided 640,792 Meals to Date
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., (Oct. 1, 2014) — In early September, Arvest Bank announced the beginning of its fourth annual 1 Million Meals campaign, which challenges bank associates, customers and communities to fight hunger in the more than 120 communities the bank serves by providing at least one million meals to those in need. Today, the bank announces the campaign has exceeded 500,000 meals, or halfway to the goal of one million meals.
Arvest branches throughout Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma have been participating in this initiative by collecting nonperishable food items and monetary donations. These efforts will continue through Nov. 1 with the intention of reaching one million meals donated to the local communities Arvest serves just in time for the holidays.
Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for local, hungry families.
Arvest customers can help support the initiative by dropping off nonperishable food items or monetary donations at any local Arvest branch or calling (866) 952-9523 to contribute.
