Bank slates food drive

McALESTER — BancFirst will serve as a donation site for the “Feeding Oklahoma”  food drive sponsored by Governor Mary Fallin again this year, organizers say.

The goal of the program is to collect one million meals for hungry Oklahomans. 

Non-perishable food items can be brought to the BancFirst “Feeding Oklahoma” collection boxes now through Oct. 31.

Needed items include canned meats, canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned beans and peanut butter.

The “Feeding Oklahoma” food drive was launched in partnership with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. However, through local partner agencies, the food collected at BancFirst McAlester will remain in the county and serve those needing assistance in surrounding communities. 

The food drive is such a worthy cause for Oklahoma,” said BancFirst McAlester President Jim Pratt.

“We encourage McAlester to get involved and bring food donations to any BancFirst location. Food collected in our location will serve families in need from our area. Last year 2,500 pounds of food were collected at BancFirst locations across the state.”

For more information call Amanda Palmer at 918-302-4450 or visit www.bancfirst.com.
