Can you believe it?!! 2021 is just days away, 40 to be exact
from the time I authored this communique. That means our annual Night to Fight Hunger on March 4, 2021 is 100 days away, or fewer by the time you are reading this.
What does that mean? It’s time for us to ask our friends of Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank to get ready to have a bunch of fun and dig deep so we can continue to meet the increased demand for hunger relief. Believe it or not, we are on the grow again. We have now grown from 1000 to 4000 square feet. The Dbacks have blessed us with grant revenue to buy our first ever refrigerated box truck with a lift gate.
Why the changes? We see over 7000 neighbors in need each month with emergency food boxes and about 2250 students each week of the school year with our student programs (backpacks, food
closets and snack packs).
We need you to join us in preparing for this year’s Night to Fight Hunger by agreeing to help underwrite the costs associated with putting the event on. Your gift will mean more from the evening’s event proceeds will go directly to providing hunger relief to thousands of our neighbors in need.
