ST. MARY’S FOOD BANK ASSISTS HEROES TO HOMETOWNS WITH HOLIDAY TURKEY & FOOD DISTRIBUTIONS TO AZ SOLDIERS
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank the Heroes to Hometowns organization for the opportunity to take part in the Turkey to Troops food distribution again this year. About 800 families were served at the National Guard Armory in Phoenix and about 2,200 families received holiday food boxes – with a turkey voucher provided by University of Phoenix – around the state on Sunday, Nov. 6.
The reactions on the faces of the soldiers – and in some cases, spouses who are making ends meet while their husbands and wives protect freedom overseas – told the story better than any words could. St. Mary’s is proud and honored to take part in assisting this program and wish all of our fighting men and women and their families a joyous holiday season.
For anyone interested in donating to this worthwhile cause and becoming a sponsor of Turkeys for Troops next year, please contact Kathy Pearce at firstname.lastname@example.org or (480) 330-1632.
