Hunger has many faces. It could be the child you see at the bus stop every morning. It could be the Secretary that greets you every day in your office. The fact of the matter is hunger in America and in Oklahoma is a problem. Oklahoma currently ranks fourth in the nation in the number of people who experience hunger. One in every five children in Oklahoma lives in poverty and is at risk of going to bed hungry. Working families sometimes have tough choices. Of the households serviced by Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, 36% report having to choose between paying for food or paying the rent or mortgage.
This Thanksgiving season, Chinowth & Cohen Realtors is sponsoring a company wide food drive throughout the month of November. Donations are now being taken at any of our six office locations. Items most needed include baby cereal/formula, canned meats, peanut butter, 100% fruit juice, pasta sauce, canned fruit and vegetables, chili, stew, and soup. The Food Bank cannot distribute food that is homemade, home-canned or previously opened. All products must have labels and be in its original packaging. No perishable food, alcohol, medicine or sodas are accepted.
All items collected will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and Sand Springs Community Services. For more information on the Food Drive contact Eileen Neighbors at 392-0900 or firstname.lastname@example.org
