AAM LLC, a community management firm that does business in Arizona, New Mexico and Florida, is turning to the Internet for a second time to raise money for St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance in Phoenix.
During the month of February, AAM will donate $1 for each new “like” it receives on its AAM Edge Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/aamedge up to $5,000 total. AAM Edge (www.aamedge.com) is an online community that provides a comprehensive go-to place for people to find, share and save on the best local deals from the largest number of sources.
“We love our communities, but we hate hunger,” said AAM President Amanda Shaw. “We found such phenomenal success using the Internet to raise money for St. Mary’s Food Bank through our virtual food drive last year, it seemed only natural to use the reach of the world wide web once again to help feed hungry people.”
Last fall, AAM broke a St. Mary’s Food Bank record by using the Internet to raise $23,278 in donations through a virtual food drive. A virtual food drive is where people make online donations with the idea of purchasing individual items for the food bank.
“This is such a fantastic cause and such an easy way to make a difference,” said Shaw. “We’re encouraging everyone to share with their friends, family and co-workers to help spread the word about this campaign.”

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!
