THANK YOU Target – Day of service at St. Mary’s Food Bank

Target – more than 300 strong – volunteers with day of service at St. Mary’s Food Bank

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank our great partners at Target for their incredible day of service at our warehouses in Phoenix and Flagstaff on Friday, April 13.
More than 300 Target employees were hard at work – sorting food, building emergency food boxes and raising the energy level at the Del E. Webb Distribution Center to a fever pitch with their bright smiles and obvious eagerness to help. At the end of the day, more than 5,000 food boxes were built and more than 175,000 pounds of food was sorted and packed.
For that kind of effort in one day, you’d need an army – and luckily we had one, dressed in red and ready to work.
To Paul Magee and his inspiring crew, a tip of the cap for a job well done and an inspiration to all. When it comes to community service, Target always hits the bull’s-eye!
