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.
We changed the Food Drive to start earlier at April 1, and now we are extending the Drive to the original end date - April 24.
Over 3,000 pounds of food has already been collected, as well as $2,000 in cash doantions.
So, the Food Drive will now run through April 24th !
Food collection boxes are 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!
