Arvest Bank’s Hunger Initiative Surpasses One Million Meals Campaign reaches 1,188,727 meals with two weeks left to give

JOPLIN, Missouri, (October 24, 2013)— Arvest Bank announced in early September the beginning of its third annual 1 Million Meals initiative, which challenges bank associates, customers and communities to fight hunger in the more than 120 communities the bank serves by providing meals to those in need. Today, the bank announced the campaign has exceeded 1,000,000 meals, reaching the goal with two weeks remaining in the campaign. A total of 1,188,727 meals have been raised.

“Reaching our goal with time still left to give to this campaign is just amazing, and a testament to the dedication of our customers, associates and community,” said Doug Doll, President of Arvest Bank in the Joplin region. “Reaching our goal of one million meals is a milestone to be celebrated, and the best part is we are not finished yet. We will continue to collect food and raise funds until Nov. 2. We want to give as much back to our communities as we can.”

Arvest branches throughout Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma have been participating in this initiative by collecting nonperishable food items and monetary donations. These efforts will continue through Nov. 2, with the donations given to the local communities Arvest serves just in time for the holidays.

Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for local, hungry families.

In the Joplin market, which consists of branches in Southwest Missouri, Northeast Oklahoma and Southeast Kansas, Arvest has partnered with several food pantry organizations and all food and monetary donations made through Nov. 2 will benefit those pantries.
