Oil Companies Launch Food Drive

Posted:

An idea in oil country to give back spreads across the state.

I VM Construction decided to start a food drive this holiday season.

They asked partners in the oil field to help out.

Now thirty-five oil field related companies are pitching in.

The governor and first lady joined in the holiday spirit today outside the capitol.

The oil companies hope to make it the largest food drive in the state.

Were collecting non-perishable food items we've got collections in fifteen cities, I think we're 70 locations we're collecting. I think we'll be able to put food on the shelves of many of these pantries and charities across the state," says Tim Daniel of IVM Construction.
