Many people like Hadjiconstantinou have started coming to get donations. People who were living comfortably before now may be out of work in the current economy, Sellars said. So when people drive through and thank them for their help, he has a few words for them, too.
“I tell them thank you right back, because it takes courage to come out and accept a donation, but we are glad they do,” Sellars said.
Since he co-founded Mustard Seed in 2001, Short's mission has been to build community and leadership in the 73114 ZIP code. The organization points people toward food drives and other services that can help them.
Employees at OPUBCO Communications Group also helped pack and pass out the boxes as part of Feed The Children's Together OKC initiative that partners a corporation with a certain area of the city in need.
As Short pointed a few cars in the right direction for food pickup, Sellers helped put boxes into a car. Two men unknown to each other before are now partners in helping the hungry in Oklahoma City.
