Category: Arvest News

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.

Q&A with Tommy File with Lawton Food Bank for 1 Million Meals

Wednesday, April 05 at 06:05 AM
Category: Arvest Community News
For more than three decades, Lawton Food Bank* has been serving people in Lawton, Okla. We’re happy to be partnering again with them for our seventh annual 1 Million Meals initiative to raise one million meals for the children, elderly and others in need across the 120+ communities we serve. 

The organization couldn’t do what they do without the help of volunteers. We connected with Tommy File, volunteer with Lawton Food Bank, to learn more about him and the organization.

What’s your involvement with the Lawton Food Bank, and how did you get started?
I work mainly in the pantry checking people out after they have completed their shopping. Additional tasks in the pantry include stocking the shelves with can goods, box goods, bread, produce and filling the freezer shelves with meat. I also drive the fork lift, as needed, and assist once a month with “Senior Day.” Occasionally, I fill-in driving the food bank truck. 

What’s a compelling experience you’ve had during your time with the Lawton Food Bank? 
The daily contact with the people is the reason I continue working at the food bank. The excitement people show when they find out what we have to offer. The “cake” they are able to get for their child’s birthday. The comments like, “Now we can make it to the end of the month!” The many, many, many thanks I have received working here. 

How can people get involved with the Lawton Food Bank? 
You can contact the director of the Lawton Food Bank, Jeri Mosiman, at (580) 353-7994.
