On Saturday, February 11, 2017, The Interfaith Alliance volunteered at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. We served in both morning and afternoon shifts and all volunteers were assigned to sorting/packing food with others from diverse religious backgrounds. We successfully prepared over 5,700 meals for our community!
Remember: We gave thanks this day. For everyone. "For our community, our common past and future hope, our oneness transcending all separation, our capacity to work for peace and justice in the midst of hostility and oppression." Let it be.
