MFA Oil Donates $160,000 to Support Local Military Families
MFA Oil raised $160,000 for Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit organization that provides emergency and other financial assistance to the families of U.S. military service members and veterans. Mark Fenner, MFA Oil president and CEO, presented a check to representatives from Operation Homefront during the company’s Third Annual Charity Golf Scramble & Concert. The event was held on June 5 at The Club at Old Hawthorne in Columbia and featured 56 teams of golfers and a private concert by country music artists Chris Janson and Jana Kramer.
“We are proud to continue our support of Operation Homefront and their dedication to serving members of our Armed Forces and their families,” Fenner says. “Thanks to the support of our sponsors, golfers, customers and employees, we have raised more than $400,000 for Operation Homefront in the last three years.”
The money donated by MFA Oil will go to active duty military and veteran families in Missouri and Kansas, as well as other areas where the needs are greater. Operation Homefront provides a long-term impact to the families of deployed and transitioning service members and post 9/11 wounded warriors through programs that promote relief, resiliency and recurring family support.
