St. Mary's Food Bank

  • Jun 8, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • St. Mary's Food Bank

This is our regular second Saturday event to support one of our strongest partners, St. Mary's Food Bank. If there is one event that you want to attend, especially if you are a new member, this would be the one.  We will have other Meetup Groups joining us, as usual, for a fun time supporting the country's first and largest food bank!

Please wear closed toe shoes and sleeveless shirts are not allowed!! Dress in layers during the winter as it will be cooler in the warehouse and dress cooler in the summer, but remember not to wear a sleeveless shirt. Some people like to wear gloves and some find them a little cumbersome to work with. Feel free to bring a pair along.

We will be working the assembly line packing boxes or bagging potatoes, apples, oranges or whatever they need us to do. The minimum age limit is 12 years old. I encourage those with teenagers to bring them as guests. It is a great event to expose your kids to volunteering and seeing how important it is to help those that are in need.

You are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations with you to this event. For more info on St. Mary's click HERE

If you are attending and have not filled out a release form for St. Mary's Food Bank before, please go HERE to print out the form to bring with you. They also have release forms without the application portion available when you arrive.

Thanks for all you do!

    I was there with one of the largest turnouts from Phoenix Philanthropists and there was still enough to do to keep everyone busy.
