Moore Liquor aided in buying sign

— A crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a new marquee sign at Moore Liquor raised $1,150 through the website GoFundMe.com and another $57 at the store. Moore Liquor used part of the funds to purchase a new marquee sign after the old one was destroyed by high winds during a thunderstorm in August. Moore Liquor is giving the remaining $707 in funds it raised to the Oklahoma Regional Food Bank. The money will go toward the food bank’s Food for Kids Backpack Program to help feed hungry children at Moore Public Schools.
