VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt Participates in One of the Largest Community Gatherings Since the Tornadoes
OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Yesterday, VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt gave away over 9,000 cups of Greek yogurt as part of the “Student Strong – A Feed The Children Rebuilding Event” in Moore, Oklahoma. VOSKOS® was one of the partners who joined forces with the Oklahoma City based organization, Feed The Children, to host an event for the families who have children that attended the two schools that were destroyed by tornadoes earlier this year.
Families lined up two hours before the start of the event in order to take advantage of the various donations that took place. Four Feed The Children 18-wheelers lined the Moore Baptist Church parking lot in anticipation of the large crowds. There was even a “drive thru” set up for families who needed easy pick up of their 20 plus pound box containing a variety of necessities. Products donated included school supplies, clothes, shoes and food, including VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt in a variety of flavors.
“This was a wonderful day,” said Gohar Ohanian, VOSKOS® Chief Marketing Officer. “It is amazing to see people and organizations like Feed The Children come together to help their neighbors. VOSKOS® delivered thousands of cups of Greek Yogurt into the hands of families that really needed this boost of support and we were happy to be able to help.”
More than 1,600 families attended the event. In addition to the product donations, there were also all kinds of activities for the kids such as face painting, games and even free haircuts for the start of the school year. The event was an energizing, fun-filled jumpstart to the upcoming school year.
A brief program kicked-off the event where representatives from various organizations addressed the families, including: Dr. Robert Romines, Superintendent for Moore Public Schools who spoke about preparing for the school year; Kevin Hagan, CEO/President of Feed The Children who educated the audience about their work throughout the U.S.; and Audrey Rowe, the Administrator for the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Washington, D.C who spoke to the families about proper health and nutrition.
