Chinowth & Cohen Realtors donated boxes of collected goods as part of a food and fundraising drive to benefit the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.Oklahoma is the fifth-hungriest state in the nation, and it’s estimated that 600,000 people struggle with hunger every day. Oklahoma food banks serve more than 150,000 people each week, yet it is not enough to keep up with the increased demand.“We feel blessed as a company, and we want to be a blessing in our community, especially during the holiday season,” said Sheryl Chinowth, owner and CEO. “By collecting meals for families in Northeast Oklahoma, we’re doing our part in helping to make sure no one goes hungry.”Every year, Chinowth encourages the associates and staff in the company to get involved in the food drive by collecting non-perishable food items or making monetary donations to help the hungry.This column is prepared by the Advertising Department of the Tulsa World.
