For the second year in a row, soldiers from the 316th Quartermaster Battalion Headquarters marched to donate canned food items to the Okmulgee Salvation Army.
The men and women from the United States Army Reserves Center in Okmulgee marched with a police escort down 8th Street to the Salvation Army Store.
Approximately 50 soldiers, in full uniform, carried about 50 lbs. of canned goods in their backpacks, and the rest of the items in trucks. About 1,200 lbs. of canned goods were donated to the food pantry.
A big thanks to the 316th Quartermaster Battalion and their donations that will help those in need in Okmulgee County.

‼️SHOP LOCAL, SHOP OKMULGEE‼️

‼️SHOP LOCAL, SHOP OKMULGEE‼️

Shop Small Saturday is Nov. 28th...PLEASE SUPPORT LOCAL this Holiday season! THEY need US, WE need THEM! #BetterTogether

TOP 5 REASONS TO #SHOPSMALL!!

1. Enjoy a Personal Touch
Local businesses know you, your family and probably even your extended family, so when you shop small it can often feel like a family reunion. You're also likely to be waited on by the shop owner, who will have a fresh perspective on the variety of products available in the store.

2. Support Your Community
When you shop local, much of the money stays right there in your community to create jobs, help local families pay bills, and increase the taxes paid into your community. That means better schools, better local jobs and more opportunities for your friends and family. Small businesses are also much more likely to give back to the community through volunteering, donations and contributions to local sporting or school teams.

3. Boutique is "In"
Everyone wants to find something unique for those on their holiday shopping lists. Small businesses often have small batches of products or homemade options that allow you to customize gifts to a much higher degree. Shopping small also gives you a story to tell along with the gift!

4. More Time for Family
Realistically, large stores can take up a great deal of time and offer an over-abundance of choices. Why sift through all the dreck, when you can shop local and find a small business that provides a curated (and smaller!) group of options? You finish your shopping more quickly and head back home for family time sooner as well.

5. Live the American Dream
Whether you own your own small business or enjoy supporting a local business in your community, the reality is that small businesses are the backbone of America. More than half the gross domestic product of the U.S. is driven by small businesses, and that's not a small number. Do your part to keep the economy healthy by shopping small!
