Breaking the record for most donations in one day! Thank you!
Thanksgiving on the Mayflower broke the record for the largest amount ever donated to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona from a public event in one day.
Donors gave more than 6,600 pounds of food and over $113,000 in cash to the Community Food Bank. The donations were matched dollar-for-dollar by Tucson Electric Power resulting in a total monetary donation of $226,000!
On November 17, in the parking lot of Sunflower Market on N. 1st Ave in Tucson, donors streamed in throughout the day with contributions that ranged from a jar of quarters to checks for $20,000. Families brought in boxes of food from their pantries. School children donated the pennies, nickels and dimes in their piggy banks.
Heartfelt thanks to Tucson Electric Power and 94.9 MIXfm! Thanks also to Meridian Mayflower Moving Systems, IBEW Local 1116, Rosemont Copper, Sunflower Markets, dedicated volunteers and all of our wonderful donors!gtdmsfnvgffgvzvc
