Scottsdale, community groups team up to hold an emergency food and supply drive

The ripple effect of the coronavirus has impacted food banks across the nation and Scottsdale is no exception. Access to safe and nourishing food is needed now more than ever. If you are healthy and able, please consider donating to our emergency food and supply drive taking place 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. both Saturday, March 21, and Sunday, March 22. Donated goods will benefit Scottsdale seniors and Vista Del Camino’s Food Bank, which directly helps seniors, families in need and the homeless. 

Our staff and volunteers will practice social distancing. Simply drive up, drop your donated goods in the bin and receive a wave and “thank you” from the distance. Your support and generosity are greatly appreciated.
