SWDesertHomes in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Vail & More!: Arizona: Tucson

Neighborhood Food Drive for Southern AZ Community Food Bank

When I was young, err...younger, my mother had a phrase that became one of those life habits.  To paraphrase,

"When life is giving you lemons, look around.  There are always those that are less fortunate than you."

Unfortunately, that's very true.  And, right now, there are a whole lot of folks living in metropolitan Tucson needing our help.

That's why we're hosting a food drive.

Community Food Bank Southern Arizona Food Drive

Fairway Mortgage and Long Realty are teaming up to help the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

Community Food Bank Southern Arizona Food Drive

 

Let's make others' reality a little bit better so they, too, can reach for their dreams.

We asked the Southern Arizona Community Food Bank about their donations this year as compared to last year, 2019.  The results are staggering.

Food drive donations from the public:

Fiscal Year 2019: 885,138 lbs

Fiscal Year 2020: 385,358 lbs

That's half a million less pounds, and just from one source.  They also get donations from restaurants, and we all know what sort of reality THEY are going through right now.

 

We need your help! Let's stock the shelves at the Food Bank.

We'll be passing out bags to part of the community at Rancho Del Cerro, but also using mailout to many of the 300+ residents who live in this lovely west side community.

Place your canned or dried food donations by your mailbox no later than 6:30 a.m. Saturday, September 26, 2020

We will be picking up between 6:30 and 8:00 am. that morning.

OR, as an alternative,  We are also raising money for the @communityfoodbank. If you’d like to chip in, please check out the page at https://donate.communityfoodbank.org/fundraiser/2911720. Every $1 donated to this campaign helps provide four meals in our community so give generously and spread the word!

All monies go directly to the CFB.  

If I can assist you in your home buying or selling in Marana, Tucson, Oro Valley, or Vail, please don't hesitate to call me!  Email at swdeserthomes@aol.com
