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
Wells Fargo will kick off their annual state-wide food drive on June 1, with the goal of helping agencies like St. Mary’s Food Banks replenish their shelves during the traditionally challenging summer months.
From June 1-15, the public is encouraged to drop off any non-perishable, non-glass food items at any Wells Fargo or Wachovia bank branch in the state. Cereals, peanut butter, canned meats, beans and rice/pasta are especially suggested in addition to peanut butter and canned fruits, vegetables and milk.
Last year’s drive collected 58 tons of food for non-profit agencies around the state, and Wells Fargo is hoping to top that total this year.
For more information, stop into any Wells Fargo or Wachovia branch.
