Make today a day of giving. Donate to the Yuma Community Food Bank. Arizona Gives Day happens once a year, the 1st Tuesday of April. This is a day to give to a charity or charities in Arizona.
Hunger hurts everyone, but it is especially devastating in childhood because hunger deprives kids of more than just food. On empty stomachs kids don't have the energy to focus, learn and grow. Yet, this is the reality for 1 in 5 children in the U.S. who worry about when they'll have their next meal.
Here in Yuma, the Yuma Food Bank feeds over 20,000+ each and every month. Help make a difference in our community! Donate to the Yuma Community Food Bank TODAY!
Today we have the pleasure of AEA Credit Union working away in the warehouse making bags of groceries and filling bags of fruit and vegetables. What a great team effort! We are thankful that they requested to have the opportunity to come and help! AEA all of us at the Yuma Community Food Bank want to say THANK YOU!
Not only does St. Paul's Episcopal Church love Yuma, they also love the Yuma Community Food Bank and to show their love and support, they put together a "Walk-a-thon" on Saturday March 11th, to raise awareness of the importance of "giving". They had 35 of the members of the church walk from Fry's on 24th Street to the Food Bank with wagon and bags of food to donate to the Yuma Community Food Bank. They collected 500 pounds of food which equates to $835.00. This was an awesome event and we are so pleased to know that St. Paul's Episcopal Church wants to continue to help the food bank with other events in the future!
