Hungry? Would a can of soup make your day? Probably not! We live in a community that doesn’t think twice about spending $10 at McDonald’s or $100 at the supermarket. Yet, there are people in our northeast Phoenix and Scottsdale communities who can’t afford to feed their family soup! We can make a difference in their lives.
Please remember the Paradise Valley Emergency Food Bank as you do your grocery shopping. Especially in the summer, there are fewer donation sources, but the needs of the hungry do not diminish! As always, all food staple items are gratefully accepted anytime.
Based on food bank requests, the church collects a different specific item each month. Donations are collected at the church office M-F, 9am – 4pm, in large wooden bins outside the office.
What does the volunteer job of transporting food from La Casa de Cristo to the food bank entail?
Picking up food at La Casa once a week and delivering it to the food bank located at 10862 N. 32nd Street, (602) 867-9228.
How much food is there? The amount varies from week to week, usually in many small bags (no boxes). The volunteer checks in at the church office to receive a key to access the areas on campus to collect the food items.
Deliveries are done on Thursday or Friday each week, 9 am-3 pm. Volunteers make their own schedule. It is important, however, that items are delivered weekly to avoid a heavy load for the volunteer the following week. Help is available, if needed, to off-load the food at the food bank
How much time does this take each week? It should take no more than 1 1/2 hours to pick up and deliver the items.
You may also call the church office at 480-948-1234 to register.
