As we all have heard, many children in Eastern Oklahoma go without regular access to meals during the summer when school is out. To help fight hunger in these children during the summer months, Reasor's has decided to extend the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive to aid the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma in feeding these children who, without help, may find themselves hungry during the summer months.
During the original food drive, April 24th – May 13th, Reasor's customers purchased 2,806 pre-made sacks with the most needed items and filled our donation boxes to the brim with other items, but yet there still is a need to respond to.
Again, all 17 Reasor's location will be setup with a drop off location at the main entrance, where you will have the opportunity to purchase a pre-made sack for $15.00 or you may drop off any non-perishable food items.
No time to shop or clear out your cabinets? No problem! You can still help by donating to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma's virtual food drive online. Just click on the DONATE NOW button at www.cfbeo.org. Every $1 donated allows the Food Bank to distribute 5 meals to the hungry families in Eastern Oklahoma.
