APMEX.com Helps in Providing Six Million Meals to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma this Holiday Season
APMEX.com, a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, is joining forces once again with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. For the second year in a row, APMEX.com is partnering with the Food Bank’s holiday match campaign, Hunger Never Takes a Holiday, from Nov. 15, 2017 to Jan. 15, 2018.
Oklahoma is one of the hungriest states in the nation, with an estimated 16 percent of the population experiencing food insecurity. During the Hunger Never Takes a Holiday campaign, every donation received will be matched dollar for dollar up to $600,000 by APMEX.com, the Cresap Family Foundation and Chesapeake Energy Corporation, for a total donation of $1.2 million – or six million meals – this holiday season to families living with hunger in central and western Oklahoma. The majority of Oklahomans served by the Regional Food Bank include chronically hungry children, seniors living on limited incomes and hardworking families who struggle to make ends meet.
“We are so very thankful for the commitment of companies like APMEX.com for joining us in the fight against hunger,” Regional Food Bank Chief Executive Officer Katie Fitzgerald said. “We very much appreciate APMEX.com’s compassion and desire to help fellow Oklahomans in need of food.”
“I believe in the Regional Food Bank’s mission to help solve hunger,” APMEX Founder and President Scott Thomas said. “Because of fundraisers like the Holiday Match Campaign, we can help win the fight against hunger in Oklahoma. If you are able to help in any way, shape or form, whether through volunteering at the Regional Food Bank or by donations, I invite everyone to join us in this fight.”
The generous joint matching challenge for Hunger Never Takes a Holiday will allow every donation to make the biggest possible impact. To donate and help the Regional Food Bank achieve its match goal of $600,000, click here.
