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!
