Won't you chip in and help the needy among you in Pima County?
Do you enjoy stuffing trucks and/or helping those less fortunate than yourself in Pima County?

If so, boy, are you in luck! Local moving company Suddath Relocation Systems of Arizona is teaming up with Move for Hunger—a nationwide nonprofit organization aiming at ending hunger that's collected more than 9 million pounds of food in the U.S. and Canada, respectively.

The two are teaming up to host a food drive to deliver food to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona next Tuesday.

Their goal is to collect as many food items as possible from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Broadway Road Safeway location (1940 E. Broadway) to help stock the shelves of the food banks.

The organizers ask that people bring any unwanted non-perishable food items from their home, or that they purchase said items when shopping that day.

Keeping food on the plates of Baja Arizona residents is of extra importance, given the 145,000 people in Pima County alone that face hunger, including one in four children.
