TUCSON, AZ – Did you know that 1 in 4 children struggle with hunger in Arizona? That is an alarming 25% of children under 18 who do not know where their next meal may come from. Arizona has one of the highest rates of food insecure children in America.
The good news is you can help! Desert Sun Moving Services, an agent of Wheaton Van Lines, and Safeway have teamed up with Move For Hunger to hold a Fill-A-Truck event on November 9th at the 7177 E. Tanque Verde Rd location in Tucson. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., community members are encouraged to donate as many items as possible to fill the Desert Sun moving truck!
For those who are unsure of what to donate, some suggested items include pasta, rice, beans, canned soup, and canned fruits and vegetables. Any and all donations, big or small, are appreciated! All donations will be transported to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona in Tucson, courtesy of Desert Sun Moving Services.
If you are in the Tucson area and want to help in the battle against hunger in your community, show your support by attending the Fill-A-Truck event November 9th! Your donations make all the difference!
