Great American Milk Drive booth at Septemberfest

Great American Milk Drive booth at Septemberfest

Dairy MAX will be at Septemberfest this Saturday, September 6th as part of the Great American Milk Drive booth. September is Hunger Action Month, and the Great American Milk Drive is an easy way for people to donate $5 and give a gallon of milk to families in need (donate online or via text (text “MILK” to 27722) = family in need gets a coupon to redeem for a free gallon of milk).


Why is this important? While milk is one of the most requested items by food bank clients, it is one of the least donated. In fact, food bank clients receive less than one gallon of milk per person per year – but the Great American Milk Drive can change that. By entering your zip code with your online donation, you ensure your donation goes to a local family. Click here to make a donation.


Join Dairy MAX, Hiland Dairy, and Homeland representatives at The Great American Milk Drive booth at Septemberfest to donate to the program and snap a picture at The Great American Milk Drive photobooth. NFL Linebacker and Bethany native Chris Chamberlain will be onsite from approximately 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. to support the cause and take photos.


The Great American Milk Drive is made possible by the nation’s dairy farmers and milk companies.


The Ag Venue showcases all aspects of Oklahoma agriculture. The Oklahoma Conservation Commission will host an interactive water quality activity and Smokey Bear will celebrate his 70th birthday by taking pictures with guests and printing the souvenir photos on-site.


The 18th annual Septemberfest to be held Saturday, September 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.at the Governor’s Mansion at 820 NE 23rd Street. Septemberfest is free and open to the public with no registration or tickets required. For more information about the event or to volunteer, please visit www.fomok.org or contact Friends of the Mansion directly at (405) 557-0198.
