FRY’S SHOPPERS, CHANNEL 3 VIEWERS SUPPORT ST. MARY’S FOOD BANK WITH “ONE BIG GIVE”
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank Channel 3, Fry’s Food Stores and all the shoppers and viewers who donated turkeys, food items and cash during the annual “One Big Give” day on Nov. 23.
More than 3,200 pounds of turkeys, more than 3,500 pounds of non-turkey food items and $5,300 in cash was collected during that one day. That will allow St. Mary’s to distribute enough food for more than 44,000 meals from that one day of giving!
Since the food drive began on Nov. 3, Fry’s had collected more than 250,000 pounds of food around the state for St. Mary’s and other food banks in Arizona.
A big thank you to Channel 3, our great friends at Fry’s and everyone who helped fill our more than 10,000 Holiday food Boxes in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. And a reminder: Christmas is just around the corner!
