Community Food Bank One of Five Tucson Non-Profits to Receive Grants from the Sundt Foundation

Five non-profit organizations in Tucson will receive special $10,000 grants from the Sundt Foundation, thanks to a recent sale of artwork belonging to Sundt.  The Five organizations are The American Red Cross, Southern Arizona Chapter, Candelighters Child Cancer Foundation of Southern Arizona, El Rio Community Health Center, Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and University Medical Center Foundation.

The paintings hung in Sundt’s Tucson headquarters on East Irvington Road for many years.  However, when the company moved to a new facility on River Road, the Western Themed art was not compatible with building’s contemporary interior design.  The senior management opted to sell the artwork and donate the proceeds to the Sundt Foundation.

“The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is especially thankful to the Sundt Foundation for their generosity,” said Bill Carnegie, President/CEO.  “The Food Bank will secure about 150,000 pounds of highly nutritious produce for low-income families across Southern Arizona.  This donation could not have come at a better time.”
