Spreading holiday cheers with food box deliveries

Volunteers are making sure that people in need across the Valley will have a Thanksgiving meal this year. FOX 10's Ty Brennan reports.

Roberts' family is just one of hundreds of volunteers that put together the boxes, and then delivered them to people across the valley. The Phoenix Rescue Mission has been delivering these boxes, during every Thanksgiving season, for the past two decades.

"We want to make sure that every family is able to have a wonderful turkey dinner, and enjoy the family opportunity like the rest of us do," said Gail Engstrom with the Phoenix Rescue Mission.

For the Roberts family, they hope this delivery will become a tradition for them, in the years to come.

"It really -- you can't put a price on the experiences you get," said Roberts.

Disney Day Givers Gave Big

An amazing 7,429 pounds of food was donated at the Mission for Give a Day. Get a Disney Day. over the weekend!

On Saturday, April 10th, Disney encouraged people to give back to their community for one day in exchange for a one day ticket to the park. For those participating at Phoenix Rescue Mission, this meant bringing a 20 pound food donation and volunteering to make emergency food boxes to feed local Phoenix families.

In total, folks brought 7,429 pounds of food and assembled over 800 food boxes for our food pantry. Each of these boxes has enough food to feed a family of four for three days to help make ends meet. All this food could not come at a better time for the Mission as we are facing a food crisis here in Arizona.

The Disney event has ended but we still need food. Please visit our website if you would like to help.

Can Madness!

Thank you to NorthShore Student Ministries for holding their “Can Madness” food drive for Phoenix Rescue Mission. Together, they were able to collect nearly 300 cans of food for our food pantry and personal care items we give to those on the streets in our Hope Totes. These donations are more than just a can of food or a bottle of shampoo, they are a chance to connect and reach out to someone in need.

We make it easy to do a food drive with your group of family, friends or coworkers by providing boxes, lists of needs and we even do pick-ups. Contact Marlena at mpadron@phoenixrescuemission.org if you’d like to start collecting for us today.
