The only statewide food drive in Arizona, the annual Wells Fargo summer food drive to benefit the Association of Arizona Food Banks continues until July 31 with collection bins in all 261 Wells Fargo Community Banking Stores across Arizona.
More than 100,000 pounds of food was collected through the drive last year and is one of the largest corporate drives in Arizona each year. The donations benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance and the other members of the Association of Arizona Food Banks, which collectively distributed more than 110 million pounds of food to the hungry of our state last year through 1,600 sites.
Those who wish to donate cash to the drive – for St. Mary’s every dollar in donations can lead to the distribution of seven meals into the community – checks can be made payable to the Association of Arizona Food Banks and sent to 2100 N. Central Ave., Ste. 230, Phoenix, AZ 85004. Donations can also be made online at http://www.azfoodbanks.org
