“Make a Donation before Your Vacation” KMLE’s Drive for St. Mary’s Food Bank is Here!

It’s one Valley institution helping another. Popular KMLE radio hosts Tim and Willy are hoping to help fill the shelves of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance during the summer months – when donations for the hungry decline while the demand for food spikes upward.

On June 21-22, the drive begins in-studio with Tim and Willy asking for donations to the Food Bank and interviewing special guests who are helping in the war against hunger.

 Donations are accepted:

 –Online at www.firstfoodbank.org  (Look for the event logo/banner above and click!)
–By phone at (602) 343-2523 from 6-9 a.m. on Thursday and Friday (6/21 and 6/22)
–Food and Cash donations accepted on-site at three different Albertsons locations:

Westside Location:  8240 West Deer Valley Road, Peoria AZ 85213
Northeast Phoenix Location: 21001 N Tatum Blvd Phoenix, AZ 85050
Scottsdale Location: 11475 E Via Linda Scottsdale, AZ 85259

Then on Saturday June 23, Tim, Willy and Andrea take the show on the road, each hosting a drive at one of the Albertsons locations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in hopes of raising more food and funds to cap the drive.

Southwest Gas has stepped up and will make a matching gift to those who donate on Thursday, while everyone who donates will be eligible to win a $750 in flight voucher from US Airways.   So help the one in four children in Arizona who fight hunger every day. Make a donation … and we might send YOU on a vacation!
