PRO’S RANCH MARKET CUSTOMERS DONATE MORE THAN $7,800 ...
TO ST. MARY’S FOOD BANK ALLIANCE DURING 2011 SUMMER CASH DRIVE
Pro’s Ranch Market at 59th Avenue and Thomas Wins “The Battle of the Stores,” Collecting More Than $2,200 For St. Mary’s at its Cash Registers
Phoenix, AZ – Leading the way in the goal to “Send Hunger Packing” this summer, the six Valley Pro Ranch Markets collected a total of $7,833 in customer donations during July to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.
The donations will allow St. Mary’s to purchase enough food to distribute nearly 55,000 meals to the one in five Arizonans – and one in four children – who live at or below the poverty line and do not know where their next meal is coming from.
Customers made donations to St. Mary’s at all checkout stands during the month of July. Donations of $20 or more (140 meals) qualified shoppers for a drawing to win $100 Pro’s Ranch Market Gift cards to help stretch their food dollars as well.
“This is what it means to be a part of the community; giving back. We are pleased to help in any way we can,” said Mike Provenzano, owner of Pro’s Ranch Markets. “In these tough economic times it’s important to give customers an opportunity to come forward and helping our neighbors in the community in their times of need.”
