Arvest Provides More than 1.8 Million Meals

Thursday, June 08 at 02:00 PM
Category: Arvest News

Thank you for helping us raise 11 million-plus meals and $2 million-plus in seven-year history of initiative.

LOWELL, Ark. – Arvest Bank launched its annual 1 Million Meals initiative to fight hunger in the four-state region the bank serves two months ago. Today, the bank announced that with the help of customers and community members, it has exceeded the campaign goal by raising a total of 1,881,283 meals in the fight against hunger.

Launched in 2011, Arvest’s 1 Million Meals campaigns have raised a seven-year total of 11,485,468 meals, which includes more than $2 million in funds given directly to the bank’s dozens of local food partners.

This year’s campaign total of 1,881,283 meals was made possible through donations from the bank, Arvest associates, customers and community members through fundraisers, events and nonperishable food drives in all Arvest branches throughout April and May. With summer here, the success of the campaign is especially meaningful because many schoolchildren will be without the meals they ordinarily receive at school.

We are thrilled to be able to provide – thanks to the hard work and generosity of our associates, customers and community members – these meals to our neighbors in need. We also hope 1 Million Meals has increased hunger awareness, and we remain committed to fighting hunger in our community long after this year’s initiative has ended. 

All money and food items raised through this campaign directly benefitted more than 70 different organizations feeding local communities in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

The bank’s decision to provide one million meals was based on the fact hunger is an issue in every community it serves. In 2015, more than 12 percent of American households surveyed were food insecure, meaning they lacked access to enough food for an active, healthy lifestyle for all household members.

Arvest Bank Named One of America’s Best Employers by Forbes

Company gets top ranking among retail banks.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arvest Bank has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of “America’s Best Large Employers” for 2017.

The bank ranked 208th out of the 500 businesses nationwide – with 5,000 or more full- or part-time associates – that scored highest in an independent survey of employees regarding satisfaction with their company. Additionally, Arvest is the highest-ranking community bank among all companies in the banking/financial services category and the only Arkansas-based company on the large employer list.

“Our goal at Arvest is to have happy and highly satisfied customers, and that simply can’t happen without highly motivated, well-trained and happy associates,” Arvest president and CEO Kevin Sabin said. “Ultimately, everything we do is about taking care of our customers and helping them find financial products and services that make their lives better.”

The results were determined by a survey conducted by research firm Statista that included almost 30,000 employees from 25 industries. Every employee was asked to anonymously rate their current employer – on a scale of zero to 10 – on how likely they would be to recommend their employer to family or friends. That rating was the biggest determining factor in the assessment. 

The second-most significant factor in the scoring was based on participants’ responses to identify good or bad employers in industries other than their own. Results of these two key elements produced scores for more than 1,800 employers nationwide. The remainder of the survey consisted of 35 other work-related topics.

This is the second year Forbes has compiled its list of America’s Best Employers, and the first time Arvest has been included. Assessments for the 2017 lists were conducted during a four-week period last year.

New Arvest Debit Cards Showcase Oklahoma State Parks

Limited edition cards to display popular destinations across Oklahoma.

Arvest Bank and the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department collaborated to create a series of specialty debit cards that showcase some of the state’s most popular state park attractions. 

The six debit card designs feature images from throughout the state, including Beavers Bend, Boiling Springs, Lake Murray, Osage Hills, Robbers Cave and Roman Nose. The cards will be available to new and current Arvest Bank customers at any bank location across Oklahoma, as well as the communities the bank serves in Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri, on May 22.

“This opportunity gives our customers access to unique designs for their specialty cards, along with the ability to show their sense of pride in Oklahoma State Parks and promote it every time a transaction is made,” said Angela Spradlin, Southwest Oklahoma marketing manager for Arvest Bank. “These six cards showcase distinct places, but each one displays some of the inherent beauty to be found in the state of Oklahoma.”

“In celebrating 80 years of Oklahoma State Parks, we want to share all of the wonderful sites Oklahoma offers, so it was an easy decision to partner with Arvest Bank, and to have the opportunity to promote our parks outside the state as well,” said Kris Marek, director of Oklahoma State Parks.   

Debit cards are free to customers who open a new account with Arvest or they may be purchased to replace an existing card for $7.50.  See the limited-edition designs on our website.
