Step Up to the Plate

The Bank of Oklahoma All Stars are getting ready to hit a home run for our community by contributing BIG to the Tulsa Area United Way–and we need you on our team. We have an opportunity to crank it out of the park, so dust off that bat and glove and take part in BOK’s campaign. The campaign officially kicks off July 30, so be thinking about how you can get involved.

We have some exciting events and activities planned during the campaign. Here are seven ways you can step up to the plate. Detailed information will be forthcoming for each of these events/activities through e-mails and BankNet articles.

Get Involved

We’re asking the Bank of Oklahoma All Stars (that is you) to step up to the plate. Online pledging is a key way for you to get engaged. Your thoughtful consideration of a pledge is important to our community, no amount is too small. Get involved–take part in the coed softball tournament, buy jeans day passes, or volunteer for Day of Caring. Through United Way, our individual efforts can make a larger impact. United Way can shape our individual caring into a powerful force that can bring about a better life for all. That’s what we call victory.

From the Dugout

“The Tulsa Area United Way is a great example of just how powerful a force teamwork can be. Through a vast network of volunteers and donors, United Way makes sure that a wide range of services are available to people who need them. You can play an important role in the success of Bank of Oklahoma’s United Way campaign for the Tulsa area this year by stepping up to the plate and getting involved. Let’s hit a home run for our community in 2015!”
