Cool Touch Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing and Electrical has partnered up with All Faith Community Services in the 15th Annual $1 Million Challenge to Fight Hunger! If you are interested in participating in this critical effort, please see details on the program and where to donate below.
From All Faith Community Services:
For the 15th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein will divide $1 million among hunger fighting agencies nationwide using it to help them raise food and funds to fill their pantries during the months of March and April.
All Faith has been participating in this challenge the last three years and we are again asking for the support from the community to help us fill our pantries and prepare for the hard summer months ahead. Whatever you donate, food or funds, Mr. Feinstein will add to our collection. Last year we pulled in over 3000 pounds of food and over $700.00 came to us. We believe we can double this amount and we need your help.
As you may well be aware during the summer month’s families rely very heavily on the food bank to help supplement their food needs. School is out and kids who normally receive free and reduced lunch and breakfast are at home and are food insecure. This means that they are missing at least one meal if not more and parents are struggling financially to provide good food. One in four children in Arizona goes hungry every day. More than half of our schools have 60% or more of the students who qualify for free and reduced lunches.
We are challenging every church, school, business and organization to get on board and have a food drive or make a donation during the months of March and April and be a partner in the most successful ongoing effort ever to fight hunger; that is something we can take pride in.
To participate in holding a food drive or to make a contribution please contact Cassie Wilkins at 623-386-3513 or you can go on line to our website www.afcsaz.com and donate or go to our “How You Can Help” tab then hit on the “Let’s Have a Food Drive” and fill out the information. Monetary donations are tax deductible and can be mailed to 214 S. 5th Street…Buckeye, AZ 85326 and we will mail you a receipt.
We thank you in advance for your support.
