Superstition Community Food Bank, 575 N. Idaho Road No. 701 in Apache Junction, recently received 1,936 pounds of food valued at $3,000 and a $1,000 cash donation.
Thirty students from a Scottsdale parochial school, working in conjunction with K2 Adventures Foundation, participated in a grocery games competition for the benefit of the food bank, according to a release.
Eleven three-member teams from Notre Dame Preparatory School were each given $300 in gift cards to purchase an equal amount of most-needed food items at Bashas’ and check out within 45 minutes. The students then went on to volunteer their time in sorting and organizing the grocery items at the food bank warehouse.
K2 Adventures Foundation combines philanthropy and community service to positively affect the lives of individuals with life challenges and disabilities in the U.S. and around the globe, the release states.
They brought the students to Superstition Community Food Bank and have pledged a twice-a-year campaign to support the food bank with food, funding, and volunteerism.
