Last year the Kare Bears joined forces with the PebbleCreek Rotary Club to sponsor a community-wide food drive for the Agua Fria Food Bank. That food drive was very successful and helped many people.
You may have read in the April PebbleCreek Post that the food drive was to begin on April 13th. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, our local food banks are in need NOW!
So, the Food Drive will start on April 1st and run through April 15th
Food collection boxes will be set up at Kare Bears House at 15383 W Cheery Lynn Rd during regular business hours, Monday through Friday,
9 AM to 3 PM. A donation box will also be outside on the porch from 9 AM to 3 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
Home pickup for those who just can’t make it to Kare Bears House is available by calling Teri Sellers at 602-793-0299 who will arrange
a Rotarian pickup.
We are asking you to check your pantry and/or pick up some extra boxed or canned goods when you go to the store.
Canned goods and non-perishable packages of food are accepted by the food bank. Peanut butter, jelly, pasta/pasta sauce, cereal, canned meat (tuna/chick/ham) canned fruit and vegetables, macaroni and cheese, soup, and granola bars ae especially desirable.
Since so many Snowbirds are going home early…..please clean your cupboards before you leave - and donate.
When you donate to the PebbleCreek Rotary Food Drive, you are making a difference! Thank you for Karing!
