CSL Plasma Peoria 133 Helps Feed Over 2,900 People!

peoria food drive

During the month of July, Peoria 133 ran a food and water drive for St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, a nonprofit that is dedicated to fighting hunger in Arizona. Center staff really engaged and encouraged donors to participate and even offered them a chance to win a raffle prize for their participation. By the end of the month, according to St. Mary's, the center had collected 3,509 pounds of food, enough to feed 2,954 people in need within the local communities. The food will be used in food distribution to needy families, children's feeding programs, or through community kitchens that help adults find employment by teaching them how to be successful in the food service industry.
