The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
One of the most sought after programs at our organization, along with our food pantry, is our Pick 5 Market. This program allows our organization to provide families fresh produce, deli, and bakery items each day of the week. Unlike our food pantry (monthly program) this program allows families in need to recieve food as many times a week as needed. With the help of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, Sam's Club, Walmart Neighborhood Market and Sprouts Farmers Market. In 2016, OCR received and distributed 197 tons of perishable and non-perishable food. A big portion of that goes to the Pick 5 Market. With such a large amount of food, we need as much help from the community as possible.
OCR is in need of volunteers to assiste with clients coming to the Pick 5 Market. Available service hours are M-W from 8:30 am to 2 pm, Th from 1 to 6 pm and Fr from 8:30 am to noon.
