OKLAHOMA CITY -- Love's is a company known for providing Oklahoman's with food and fuel along the highway, but now it's employees are providing a helping heart to the community.
DeNease Vinyard has worked in the Love's corporate office for 28 years.
"I've worked on numerous committees for the company through our own organizations that we raised money for," Vinyard said.
Assisting executives in the company that Oklahoman's know as the place where they can stop and fill up, but behind that name and the recognizable logo, the Love's empire really has been built with heart.
The Love's family has given all 370 corporate employees, $450 dollars to give back to the community, to any charity of their choice. A gesture this business knows will make a difference in the tough economy.
Love's has given their employees $165,000 to give away. Next year, they may give even more workers the chance to give.
