Best Western International Donates nearly 4,000 meals During Food and Fund Drive

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank the Employees Activity Committee of Best Western International for their efforts in a recent food and funds drive to benefit Arizona’s hungry.
The drive, which began in November and ran through mid-December, engaged employees by promoting drawings to win AMC Movie Gift Cards and 2-night free stays at any Best Western hotel. Employees were also allowed to redeem their Best Western Reward points towards gift cards to donate towards the food drive.
In the end, the drive raised 1,206 pounds of food and when combined with funds will allow St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance to distribute 3,971 meals to those in need this holiday season. Corinna Friday, Employee Activities Committee Chair for Best Western International Beardsley Operations Center and Jerry Hutchison, Senior Facilities Representative presented Jerry Brown of St. Mary’s with the drive proceeds.
Thank you Best Western!
