Donald W. Reynolds Distribution Center
Donald W. Reynolds, a native Oklahoman, displayed the same qualities in life that define the personality and spirit of all Oklahomans – a desire to work hard and to give generously to those in need. Throughout his life, he bestowed millions of dollars upon nonprofit organizations in communities where his media interests did business. Today, the foundation that bears his name carries on his work of philanthropy.
In 1998, ground broke on the Donald W. Reynolds Distribution Center of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Made possible through private contributions as well as a matching gift from the Reynolds Foundation, it was completed and opened for business in 2000. Housing 90,000 square feet of food storage space, state-of-the-art inventory tracking systems and a wide array of energy efficiencies, it serves as a central link for the food industry, private citizens and government entities to donate food and other products for distribution to thousands of Oklahomans in need.
