The Southwestern Christian University volleyball team volunteered at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Aug. 15.
The team helped pack boxes of food to be delivered to Oklahoma senior citizens. The Lady Eagles helped pack over 1,300 boxes, more than 41,000 pounds of food that will feed over 34,000 Oklahomans.
“We were trying to think of a great community service project for this fall,” SCU coach Kristen Coventon said. “So many children and senior citizens go to bed hungry, and we thought this was the perfect opportunity to help out. The food bank is able to provide more than 100,000 meals a week all over the state and we were proud to put a dent in that number in just a few hours.”
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is the largest private hunger-relief charity in the state; providing enough food to feed more than 110,000 hungry Oklahomans every week. One in four children and one in six adults struggle with hunger, never certain where their next meal will come from or if there will even be a next meal. To make a donation, click here.
