Phillips Murrah's Paying It Forward amplifies the message of one non-profit organization 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 November 2022 is Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. #PIFOKC
Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma
With Thanksgiving month upon us, Phillips Murrah is proud to support Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma in their efforts to fight hunger in Oklahoma. RFBO distributes food through a network of more than 1,300 community-based partner agencies and schools in 53 counties in central and western Oklahoma.
RFBO 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 – RFBO 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 2022, and going into 2023, RFBO continues to distribute million of pounds of food to people facing hunger.
