Arvest Bank launched its 12th annual Million Meals campaign on April 1. Today, the bank announced the campaign has raised 547,738 meals, more than half its goal.
The campaign runs through May 28 and all funds raised will be donated to local organizations in the communities Arvest serves.
“We thank everyone who has donated to and supported the campaign so far,” Jaren Beavers, vice president and marketing manager of Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas, said. “We know the meals raised will be much-needed this summer, when a lot of kids don’t have access to meals they ordinarily receive at school and when many of our food partners report fundraising challenges.
“We also want to remind our customers they can donate via our mobile banking app, Arvest Go, which makes giving easy and secure.”
Arvest has raised more than $27,000 via Arvest Go at this point in the campaign and is aiming to break the previous record of $38,429.
Anyone wishing to make a monetary donation can do so at any Arvest branch and Arvest Flex Rewards™ credit cardholders can log in to arvestflexrewards.com to redeem and donate rewards points.
Every dollar raised through Million Meals provides the equivalent of at least five meals for local, hungry families. Locally, Arvest in North Central Arkansas has partnered with the Food Bank of North Central Arkansas, Mercy Mall of Harrison, and the Yellville Area Food Closet.
