Again this year BancFirst is serving g as a donation site for the "Feeding Oklahoma" food drive sponsored by Governor Mary Fallin. The goal is to collect one million meals for hungry Oklahomans.
Non-perishable food items can be brought to the BancFirst "Feeding Oklahoma" collection boxes Oct. 1-31. Needed items include: Canned meats, canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned beans and peanut butter.
While the "Feeding Oklahoma" food drive is a partnership with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, the food collected at BancFirst's area locations remains in Carter County and serves those needing assisting in surrounding communities through through local partner agencies.
"The food drive is a very worthy cause for Oklahoma," said BancFirst Ardmore President Stan Marshall. "We encourage Ardmore to get involved and bring food donations to any BancFirst location. Food collected in our location will serve families in need from our area. Last year 2,500 pounds of food was collected at BancFirst locations across the state."
