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.)

Here is a list of items St. Mary’s Food Bank needs:
Beans (canned or dried)
Canned fruits, veggies
Canned soup, stews, chili
