Valley Animal Hospital Holds Yearly Food Drives

Since 2004 Tucson’s Valley Animal Hospital has been collecting food donations for the Community Food Bank. Arranged by Ericka Hughes, the drive this year culminated in over 6,000 pounds of donated food.

Ericka says the yearly drive is a “good way to help employees with morale while helping the community.” The employees have split into 4 teams each designing their own posters and racing to collect the most food. The winning team gets to dress up the doctors in funny costumes at a party to finish off the successful drive.

Jacob Coldsmith, the Community Food Bank’s Food Drive Coordinator has this to say; “It really is amazing that Valley can collect so much food in such a short time.  I always enjoy working with Valley and seeing the enthusiasm that pushes all the employees to keep collecting literally tons of food year after year!!  Valley is a wonderful asset to the community we serve. ”

The Community Food Bank wishes to thank Valley Animal Hospital for the hard work they have been doing since 2004.
