St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance always looks forward to our annual call from All Saints Episcopal Church and Day School, and from this year’s photo, you can certainly tell why!
All Saints holds a St. Mary’s food drive to benefit the hungry of Arizona each year, and once again their congregation, parents and students put forth a great effort. The final total was more than 20,500 pounds of food – including many 50-pound bags of rice that our 500 partner agencies around the Valley and state will certainly put to good use. With more than $500 in cash donations included, this drive will allow the food bank to distribute more than 24,000 meals into the community.
This is a huge undertaking but a labor of love for the members of the church, who have donated more than 43,000 pounds in just the last two years alone.
Especially this year, with donations lagging and with so many people – including one in four of Arizona’s children – in need, this overwhelming donation is sincerely appreciated. Thank you All Saint Episcopal Church and Day School for your generosity, compassion and concern for those in your community who need help right now.
