At Bob Mills Furniture, one of our core values is "Everyone is Family". This applies to how we treat our customers and our fellow employees within the company. We also feel that it is important to live by this credo as members of the communities where we live and work. One of the many community efforts we been proud to support is the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, a member of the Feeding America network of Food Banks, is the largest private domestic hunger-relief charity in the state - providing enough food to feed more than 126,000 hungry Oklahomans every week, 37 percent of which are children. 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.
We believe that no child or adult should go hungry. Organizations such as the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma or the South Plains Food Bank in Lubbock work hard to collect financial and food contributions to address hunger throughout the regions. However, some of the most valuable contributions to these organizations is your time. Bob Mills Furniture is proud to have contributed financially, but is even more proud of the many employees who volunteered their time to contribute to the efforts of this honorable organization.
Once the food donations arrive at the facility, they need to be prepared for distribution to those in need. Bob Mills Furniture employees aid in this critical stage of logistics by boxing, weighing and packaging food items for individual, family and group distribution. The need for volunteer hours often peaks around holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, but donations of your time are always needed.
Bob Mills Furniture is a financial supporter of the Boys & Girls Club, and our employees volunteer as mentors, and acting as role models for this young generation.
Each year, Bob Mills employees participate in OU Medicine's Corporate Challenge to raise money for the UCO Endeavor Games.
