Arvest Bank is set to support Texoma Gives, a 16-hour day of giving that raises funds for non-profits in 11 counties around southern Oklahoma and northern Texas, on Thursday, September 7. The event, which is coordinated by the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation, includes 15 non-profits based around Lawton.

The non-profits will be set up at Lawton Community Theatre (1316 NW Bell Ave) from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Breakfast will be served from 7:30-11 a.m. Arvest will be on location grilling and serving hot dogs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

“Arvest Bank is proud to support such a great initiative like Texoma Gives,” Angela Spradlin, Marketing Manager for Arvest Bank said. “It is important to us to always give back to the community. An event like this one that brings so many non-profits together provides a perfect opportunity to raise funds for all these great organizations that serve Southwest Oklahoma.”
