APMEX.com Once Again Joins the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to Provide 4.8 Million Meals During Holidays
APMEX.com, a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, is pleased to announce they will be teaming up with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma for their 2018 Holiday Match Campaign from Nov. 15, 2018 to Jan. 15, 2019.
Normally, every $1 donated to the Regional Food Bank provides four meals. Thanks to APMEX.com, the Cresap Family Foundation and Chesapeake Energy Corporation, every donation received during the Match Campaign will be matched dollar for dollar up to $600,000, for a total donation of $1.2 million this holiday season. This means every dollar donated over these two months will provide literally twice as many meals to families living with hunger in central and western Oklahoma.
“The Regional Food Bank is so fortunate to have such generous Holiday Match donors who will help others’ donations go twice as far,” Regional Food Bank Chief Executive Officer Katie Fitzgerald said. “Hunger is real for too many of our neighbors. Please consider joining us in making holidays a little brighter for the one in six Oklahomans who lives with hunger.”
Oklahoma consistently ranks among the hungriest states and is currently the sixth-hungriest state in the nation. 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. One in four children and one in six adults have inconsistent access to healthy food.
“The Holiday Match Campaign is a great opportunity for Oklahomans to come together because your dollar will go further during this campaign and will help provide meals for families all across the state,” APMEX.com Founder and President Scott Thomas said. “This is APMEX’s third year in a row to partner with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to help support the Holiday Match effort and it really means a lot to us because at APMEX, giving back is a core value of ours that we take to heart.”
The generous joint matching challenge during the 2018 Holiday Match Campaign will allow every donation to make the largest possible impact. To donate and help the Regional Food Bank achieve its match goal of $600,000, click here. Donations may also be mailed to:
