They are never here for long, but St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance always appreciates our annual visit from Discover Card. The employees take part in a holiday scavenger hunt and always include a component for helping Arizona hungry in the event.
This year, the event had a Rock Star theme so the five teams arrived in limousines dress as their favorite bands – we recognized KISS and Bon Jovi among those paying us a visit. All the limos were packed with food hurriedly purchased at grocery stores minutes before. And when we weighed what the five teams brought in, more than 6,400 pounds of much-needed food was donated.
We hardly even had a chance to thank them. So we’re doing it now. Thanks Discover Card! Happy Holidays. See you next year!
