St. Mary’s Food Bank
Members of PlanetOne’s From the Heart team visited the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance this week to lend their hand in feeding the needy in the local Phoenix community. St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance distributes 40,000 Emergency Food Boxes each month, at no cost, to individuals and families in need. A majority of those receiving Emergency Food Boxes include the elderly, children, working families and the homeless. At this facility there are 5 employees, and 90% are volunteers and there are certain organizations that volunteer on regular bases.
Maricela, Shawna, Jennifer and Chewy rolled up their sleeves and devoted an afternoon to volunteer to make their community a better place. The team made food bags for the homeless – a total of 8 pallets (72 bags per pallet) which included, soup, cup of soups, water, nuts, crackers, and sandwiches, this provides food for the homeless in the local community for about one week.
The mighty team’s take-away from their afternoon of hard work, “There is a steady line of people that rely on St. Mary’s Food Bank and this experience was very rewarding; we were touched and honored to be able to assist this organization that helps the homeless and needy families.”
Thanks to Maricela, Shawna, Jennifer and Chewy for your hard work and dedication to serving those less fortunate. This volunteer experience was truly From the Heart!
