Are you one of those people who feel guilty because you're so busy you don't think you have time to make a positive difference in your community. Here's a suggestion: Just give Food Drive Specialist Melissa Forrester a call over at United Food Bank (480-926-4897 Ext. 213) and tell her you'd like to coordinate a food drive at your place of business or church. She'll get some information and tell you where to pick up a collection box and posters. She can even arrange pickup of collected items.
This is a critical time for United Food Bank because the shelves have been depleted by heavy demand through the long summer. So don't delay: Give Melissa a call or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, visit the Food Bank's food drive web page HERE.
