The Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma is honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s life of service by serving the community.

“The Food Bank traditionally participates in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade. Last year was the first year we also opened our volunteer center for individuals to emulate the model of Dr. King with direct service to the community,” said Eileen Bradshaw, executive director for the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. “Not only was the response and productivity remarkable, but everyone had a great time as well. We look forward to see what kind of energy and spirit the groups bring this year.”

Dental Depot is sponsoring the non-profit this year. The Food Bank is encouraging volunteers and supporters to march together with its employees, in addition to those of Dental Depot.

“I can think of no better way for us to celebrate this day than to use it to give back to the communities we live in and serve,” commented April Sharry the director of marketing for Dental Depot. “We are honored to be able to march with those from the Food Bank and the Tulsa community to honor the legacy of Dr. King.”

Pre-registered volunteers will sort and pack food for distribution to the Food Bank's network of agencies from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. For more information on volunteering, you can go to their website or call Conner Carroll at 918-936-4545.
