A big thanks on behalf of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance goes to Enterprise Rent-A-Car for donating an additional $5,000 through its national foundation on Aug. 10 to support people in need across Arizona.
The latest donation comes on the heels of a $2,500 donation from Enterprise’s Arizona foundation earlier this summer. And in the spring, Enterprise teams with friends from Liberty Mutual Insurance to raise $1,800 and nearly 3,300 pounds of food during a Casino Night that benefitted the food bank. Representatives from both Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Liberty Mutual were on hand for the check presentation and we’re proud to say both companies are true Hunger Heroes!
In all these donations of food and funds will allow St. Mary’s to distribute enough food to provide more than 68,000 meals for the hungry in our state. Thank you so much for this incredible donation!
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank those fantastic “Hunger Heroes” from CVS Caremark for providing more than 35,000 meals for their community through its annual fundraising events.
Lou Evers and CVS Caremark held the Amazing Rain Tree Pie Toss, where managers, directors and vice president’s graciously volunteered to be “auctioned off” to receive a pie tossed gently at them. Employees from all over the building joined in, and everybody had a lot of fun, as you can see from the pictures.
CVS Caremark raised more than $5,000 this year by hosting events like Jeans Week (where employees were permitted to wear jeans to the office for a week for a $5 donation), and by raffling off a flame-top Les Paul copy guitar, a Kindle Fire and a Logitech Keyboard and Mouse. The pie toss alone raised over $800 and Jim Hintzen, founder and coordinator of Jeans Week, graciously donated a guitar from his own collection to the fundraiser. (You can let go of that ax anytime now, Jim!)
What a great way to help feed neighbors in need and have a great time doing it. Thank you CVS Caremark!
