September is Hunger Action Month! Because you are one of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s loyal volunteers, we’re calling on you to help us deepen our engagement in the fight against hunger. This video, which features Devon Energy’s enthusiastic volunteers, is a great example of how people who are passionate about the cause can join forces to make a difference. That’s exactly what each of you are doing through your volunteer support, and Oklahomans who face hunger appreciate it more than you know. We hope you’ll consider sharing with your friends and family how easy it is to make a difference.
Thank you to those that have signed up already: Scott Nachatilo, Jack Werner, Jamie Crowe, Gus Peraka, and Dawn Mahiya

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease.

Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
