ABC15 and Fry’s Food Stores teamed up with the goal to stock the shelves at Valley food banks during our Alphabet Soup Food Drive.
Arizona’s generosity helped make our state a better place by collecting enough food for 685,500 meals to help feed the hungry in our state!
Throughout the month of February, ABC15 and Fry’s Food Stores asked viewers and customers to make a difference by dropping off non-perishable food items and making monetary donations. ABC15 also hosted a phone bank during the month, which raised enough money to supply 29,000 meals!
Donations are being equally divided between United Food Bank and St. Mary’s Food Bank.
“ABC15’s commitment is to help make Arizona a better place to live, and there is no more important issue than the hunger of children and families,” said Anita Helt, vice-president and general manager at ABC15.
Thank you, Arizona!
