The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
For the second consecutive year, Arizona’s own musical treasure Roger Clyne is teaming up with St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance to raise awareness – and food – for families struggling with hunger this holiday season.
This year, Roger is really upping the ante. He will make a special lunchtime appearance at St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance’s Del E. Webb Distribution Center (2831 N. 31st Avenue) on the day before Thanksgiving to give his fans who help the Food Bank a special treat of their own. From noon to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 23, Roger and drummer P.H. Naffah will not only play their own selections but take requests from fans who make special donations to the food bank.
St. Mary’s is asking that fans bring turkeys, canned food or cash equal to a $10 donation to the show to help the one in five adults and one in four children in Arizona that need help to put food on the table this holiday season St. Mary’s personnel will be stationed at the entrances to the food bank to collect the donations prior to entry to the Food Bank parking lot.
Later that day, Roger will head to the East Valley and collect canned food, turkeys and cash donation from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Top Liquors in Tempe (403 W. University Drive). Clyne will be signing bottles of his ultra-premium Mexican Moonshine Tequila for those who make a donation to St. Mary’s for the holiday season.
“The food bank would like to thank Roger Clyne for giving of his time to help the hungry of Arizona and we invite his fans to come to St. Mary’s Food Bank and take advantage of this great opportunity,” St. Mary’s president and CEO Terry Shannon. “Roger is known not only for his incredible music but his big heart when he comes to helping the community. We are honored he has selected our Food Bank as a partner and are looking forward to a great day.”
So come on out and talk Turkey – and stuffing, and canned vegetables – with Roger Clyne and help Arizona’s hungry while helping yourself to a great chance to check out some great music.
