The Masonic Fraternity has long been a sponsor of the News 9 Oklahoma’s Own Ride Against Childhood Hunger in support of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. The 2015 Ride occured September 13, 2015 and took riders from Oklahoma City to Mulhall via Arcadia. The Masonic Charity Foundation – with support from Oklahoma lodges – contributed $35,000 to the Regional Food Bank in support of this year’s event.
The Foundation will continue to match all lodge donations submitted in response the the Grand Master’s Charitable Appeal to support this year’s campaign. Donations in support of the Regional Food Bank and Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma result in direct assistance to communities all across Oklahoma. These food banks supply smaller food banks througout the state with the food to fill their local pantries. Lodges are encouraged to respond to the Grand Master’s plea in full force. A $15,000 contribution to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma was made in 2015 in response to the appeal.
