Aiming Higher to Give Food to Arizonians in Need
Q2 2021 Giving Back
This month, as part of our Aim Higher initiative, the Yeager Marketing team partnered with Saint Mary’s Food Bank. Determined to help St. Mary’s end hunger in Arizona, we assembled over 500 emergency food boxes to help local families and individuals in need. Seeing how much the pandemic has impacted people across the country, it was just one way for us to give back to a cause that is close to our hearts.
St. Mary’s Food Bank serves two-thirds of Arizona’s 15 counties. Each year, the organization distributes over 86 million meals to individuals struggling with hunger and in 2020 alone distributed over 97 million pounds of food. Throughout Arizona, over 2 million Arizonians are faced with hunger struggles every year and 1 in 4 children in Arizona grow up with food insecurity. The hot summer months are particularly challenging with kids out of school and food demand increasing. It was a privilege for us to serve and imagine a world in which no one goes hungry.
Our volunteer day was rewarding and the St. Mary’s team makes it a great experience for volunteers. They played the music loud and it was almost impossible not to have fun. Everyone played a role, but we worked as a team — challenging ourselves to move faster, pack more boxes, and do more for our community. We’ll definitely be doing more to help this amazing organization.
