University of Phoenix MBA Open House

The Community Food Bank is pleased to partner with the University of Phoenix for their “MBA Open House” on Wednesday, July 25, 2007, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Each person attending the open house is asked to bring three cans of food for the Community Food Bank.

Summer is the time when the desert heats up and many people take vacations to cooler climes.  But for thousands of Tucsonans, there is no vacation from hunger.  About 60% of the people served by the Food Bank are children and senior citizens.  While many children have access to school meals programs when school is in session, those programs stop in the summertime, leaving parents scrambling to find ways to feed their families.  That is why requests for emergency food boxes are up 34%.  Now is a critical time for us to help fill the 14,000 food boxes the Food Bank distributes every month. 

This University of Phoenix food collection event will help us meet this increased demand.  And the “MBA Open House” is a perfect opportunity for working adults to learn about the advantages of getting a Masters degree at the University of Phoenix.  The MBA program utilizes problem-based learning where students refine their problem-solving skills along with their communication, creativity, and critical-thinking skills.   

The “MBA Open House” will take place Wednesday, July 25, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the University of Phoenix Williams Centre Learning Center, 300 South Craycroft Road in Tucson.  All food collected at this open house will benefit the Community Food Bank.
