AFR Food Drive Deadline is Dec. 11
Volunteer leaders with the “Drive away hunger with AFR” food drive are wrapping up their 2015 campaign with a request for financial gifts. The campaign is a joint effort with local and statewide food banks including the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and American Farmers & Ranchers Women’s Cooperative.
“For each dollar donated the food banks can provide up to five meals to those who are hungry,” said Suzanne Gilbert.
Gilbert added that donations can be applied towards one of the following initiatives:
