RE/MAX Professionals Holiday Food Drive

RE/MAX Professionals Holiday Food Drive 

The holidays are a special time of year; a time to gather with family and friends to create new memories. It is also a great time of year to remember those who are not so fortunate. While you may not feel like you can help everyone or that your donation doesn’t help enough, the food banks need even just one can of food. Please help us by donating to the RE/MAX Professionals Holiday Food Drive.

Hunger Statistics in Arizona:

• Currently, one in four children, one in five Arizonans, and one in seven seniors in Arizona live in poverty.

• One in five Arizonans lives in poverty: 1.4 million individuals or 20.6 percent of the population. That number was a staggering 37 percent increase from 2010 to 2011 and is the second-highest in the nation behind only the state Mississippi.

• 338,000 Arizona children live in poverty; 37% are under the age of five.

• 2 million Arizonans are considered working poor, living at or below the Federal Poverty Guideline. This is the majority of those served by the Food Bank’s EFB program.

• Nearly 900,000 individuals in Arizona needed to seek emergency food help from charities within the last year. St Mary’s Food Bank Alliance served more than 477,000 of of those needing help, providing the bulk of charitable emergency food service in the Valley and throughout the state.

• In 2011-12, St. Mary’s Food Bank distributed nearly 440,000 Emergency Food Boxes (averaging 36,000 EFBs a month) into the community, the most of any food bank in the United States.

• More than 40 percent of the households receiving emergency food assistance have at least one person who is working.

Please help us feed the families in need here in our local community. RE/MAX Professionals’ agent, Tiger Myers has organized a holiday food drive. You can bring non-perishable food items to your office, check or cash donations. As little as a $1.00 donation can provide seven meals. And remember this is a tax deductible donation. The RE/MAX Professionals Holiday Food Drive ends Christmas Eve. If you need more information, please contact Tiger at 602.501.8443 or via email at aztiger57@gmail.com.

RE/MAX Professionals Food Drive 

This year, RE/MAX Professionals will be hosting a food drive for St. Mary’s Food Bank. The drive started this week on Monday, December 10th and will run through Friday, December 21st.

As the oldest food bank in the world, St. Mary’s distributes millions of pounds of food to the hungry every year…more than 74 million pounds last year alone! In Arizona alone, St. Mary’s Food Bank serves nearly 2 million people.

  • 1 in 4 Arizona children (338,000) live in poverty, 37 percent are under five
  • 1 in 7 Arizona seniors live in poverty
  • 1 in 5 Arizonians (1.4 million) live in poverty
  • Arizona is the second highest in the nation with a 37 percent increase from 2010 to 2011

RE/MAX Professionals will be accepting food at each of our six office locations from December 10th until December 21st or you can bring your donations to the following company events:

  • RE/MAX Professionals Holiday Party: Wednesday, December 12th
  • RE/MAX Professionals Monthly Office Meeting: Tuesday, December 18th

St. Mary’s Food Bank also accepts cash donations. For every $1.00 collection, St. Mary’s can provide seven meals. Just think that a small donation of $25.00 would feed approximately 175 people! (Please note, checks should be made out to St. Mary’s Food Bank.)
