Over $3.6 Million Raised During the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s 2017 Holiday Match Campaign; APMEX.com Helps With Support
From November 15, 2016, to January 15, 2017, APMEX.com, a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma for their 2017 Holiday Match Campaign. During this time, APMEX.com and other partners matched donations up to $600,000 to help feed hungry Oklahomans during the holidays. Through the generosity of our neighbors, the Regional Food Bank was able to raise over $3.6 million in just 61 days. This totals to more than 18.4 million meals donated throughout the campaign.
“We have been honored to work with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to help with donation support when it was needed the most,” APMEX.com founder and President Scott Thomas said. “Each year during the holidays, many families struggle to make ends meet and that may mean going without food. We at APMEX are thrilled with the success of this campaign and that Oklahomans pulled together to help out families in need for such a big impact.”
Service is a core value at APMEX, but it’s not just something that’s said, it’s something that’s practiced every day. Thomas grew up knowing hunger and it’s from those beginnings where APMEX’s passion to help others with the same need began. The Regional Food Bank is the perfect partner for APMEX to help those in need of food assistance. For these reasons APMEX, has adopted the Regional Food Bank as their primary charity.
“We have worked with the Regional Food Bank for many years now,” APMEX.com CEO Ken Lewis said. “Supporting the Holiday Match Campaign was new for us this year and we couldn’t be more excited with the results. We are looking forward to working with the Regional Food Bank on future campaigns and continuing to help our fellow Oklahomans.”
Oklahoma is one of the hungriest states in the nation with one in six Oklahomans struggling with food insecurity. Additionally, one in four children in the state have inconsistent access to food.
