On the morning of Saturday, November 16th, several of WAXIE’s Tucson employees, their guests, and employees from other organizations volunteered their time at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
The WAXIE employees helped pack emergency food boxes for Southern Arizona residents. The volunteers spent three hours packing over 2600 boxes of food, which weighed a total of 40,000 lbs! This opportunity proved to be a rewarding way for our employees to get involved in fighting hunger, and a great way for them to meet other like-minded individuals.
Some facts about Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona:
• They distribute enough food for 62,800 meals a day
• For every $1.00 donated, they can distribute nearly $9.00 worth of food
• Their programs assist people within 23,106 square miles of Southern Arizona
