St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank the employees from Freeport McMoRan Copper and Gold for volunteering their time Friday afternoon at the Dell Webb Distribution Center. With smiling faces and a great energy, the volunteers packed more than 400 emergency food boxes that will soon be distributed to the hungry of Arizona through our Knight Client Services Center.
Freeport McMoRan has been and remains a strong supporter of St. Mary’s mission. This summer, the employees held a food drive competition between floors and collected more than 3,000 pounds of some of St. Mary’s most needed non-perishable food items (canned meals, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables.)
It’s a great combination: The world’s largest publicly traded copper company – and the world’s first food bank! Thank you very much, Freeport McMoRan and we hope to see you in the house again soon!
