Hotel Valley Ho in Downtown Scottsdale is supporting St. Mary’s Food Bank with a Facebook campaign for the holiday season.
The hotel will donate $1 for each new fan on the Hotel Valley Ho Facebook page www.facebook.com/hotelvalleyhoscottsdale that “likes” the page between Thanksgiving Day and New Year’s Eve.
The hotel will note the number of fans just before the start of Thanksgiving Day – Thursday, November 24. The number of fans will then be noted just after the end of the evening of New Year’s Eve – Saturday, December 31. The number of fans prior to Thanksgiving will be subtracted from the new number of fans, and that number will be given to the world’s first food bank as a donation ($1 per new fan) to help provide food for Arizona residents in need. With one dollar, St. Mary’s can distribute food enough to provide seven meals.
Hotel Valley Ho is encouraging people to spread the word; more fans mean more meals for St. Mary’s. Please visit their website and provide seven meals to the hungry with one click of the mouse!

Demand for the Food Bank’s services has increased 20 percent over the same time last year. Those utilizing our services may not be the people you expect. The common misconception is only the homeless visit food banks and soup kitchens. In reality, those seeking assistance at our locations and those of our partner agencies are people like you and me, trying to make ends meet in a difficult time.
