Senator’s service project builds on annual tradition of volunteering to ensure Arizonans are fed during the holiday season
MESA – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema volunteered with United Food Bank to assemble emergency food boxes to feed Arizona families in need for the holiday season.
“The spirit of service is strong in Arizona thanks in large part to the extraordinary efforts of nonprofits like United Food Bank, which I was honored to be a part of today. I’m grateful for United Food Bank’s commitment to supporting Arizona families, seniors, veterans, tribal communities, and our entire state through their service,” said Sinema.
United Food Bank began in 1983 with deep roots in the East Valley and, by 1985, expanded to include its current area of service in Gila, Pinal, and southern Apache and Navajo Counties in addition to its original service area in the East Valley of Maricopa County. The Food Bank serves some of the most remote and rural areas in Arizona.
Sinema volunteers each year during the holiday season to bring attention to the work of local nonprofits and encourage all Arizonans to help in whichever way they are able.
United Food Bank hosts many emergency food box volunteer opportunities, like the one Sinema volunteered at, throughout the holiday season. Arizonans interested in supporting their efforts can get more information HERE.
