A Letter from Our President & Chief Executive Officer – Tom Kertis
You put nutritious food on the tables of hungry neighbors when
you support St. Mary’s Food Bank this holiday season. What you
may not be aware of is the joy you bring to the people you help,
especially this time of year.
With holiday celebrations and food seemingly everywhere, many
families often feel left out of the festivities — like they’re on the
outside looking in. That’s where your compassion and generosity
come into play.
I wish you could see the joy (sometimes accompanied by tears)
on their faces when they walk out of St. Mary’s Food Bank with a
box brimming with delicious foods — even turkeys — knowing
they too will be able to celebrate around the table. Truly priceless!
You are the reason for that joy. It’s only because of caring friends
like you that St. Mary’s Food Bank can get food to those in need
across Arizona. So thank you, and if you are able, please continue
your kind support with a generous gift today.
Every $1 you share provides 7 meals for children, families, and
seniors. Just imagine all the good you will do . . . all the joy you
