Phillips Murrah’s Paying It Forward amplifies the message of one non-profit each month, all year long
Since December of 2020, Phillips Murrah has partnered with Oklahoma NPR radio station KGOU to sponsor broadcast announcements each month that shine a light on a selected non-profit organization. Our aim is to amplify each beneficiary organizations’ needs and goals, and to help increase awareness, drive volunteer quality and quantity, assist in fundraising support, and improve capacity to deliver service to the community.
Our Paying it Forward beneficiary in December is Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. #PIFOKC
Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma
Founded in 1980, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma distributes food through a network of more than 1,300 community-based partner agencies and schools in 53 counties in central and western Oklahoma.
RFB is also a leader in educating the public on hunger, advocating for those living with hunger, and providing access to additional resources to promote self-sufficiency.
In 2020 – their 40th anniversary – RFB found itself shifting into disaster-relief mode in response to the impact of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Relying upon its core values of innovation, vitality and stewardship, the staff worked to ensure that the network of partners had the food and safety supplies needed to safely serve the growing need of Oklahomans seeking food assistance.
In 2021, and going into 2022 (with a new logo!), RFB continues to distribute million of pounds of food to people facing hunger.
