Maxine and her family are known for their active and generous commitment to the Jewish community, mental health, homelessness, and social services.

Maxine’s husband, Jack Zarrow, joined his father and brother Henry in the family business, Sooner Pipe and Supply. The iconic Tulsa firm enabled a great deal of the family’s philanthropy and employed, among other friends and family, the Zarrow’s son Scott, who passed away at age 54 in December, 2012. Like his parents, Scott was active in the Tulsa and Tulsa Jewish community. His passing is a loss to the family and to Tulsa.

Maxine and Jack created their own family foundation and played a leading role in the formation of the Tulsa Jewish Retirement and Health Care Center, located today near 71st & Lewis. The family’s commitment to fighting for the homeless is also celebrated today thanks to their gift, along with the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, of the land that is now occupied by the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless.
"Tulsa’s really sort of become the model for the whole country in the way that they have provided the right kind of facilities for people who’ve had some mental health problems."
This interview was recorded June 11, 2012 before a live audience at Temple Israel in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
