Thanks to the generosity of Sun Devil Nation, we've blown past our initial goal. Now we have our sights set even higher on helping on those in need this holiday season.
As you may have heard, with Arizona State soon to battle Navy in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, we teamed with DieHardDevil.com, DevilsDigest.com, Cactus Sports and the ASU hockey team to do a little hunger fighting of our own.
We initially launched our food drive with the goal of raising 4,242 meals for St. Mary's Food Bank. Just 10 days in, and we've already exceed 8,000 meals.
So first off, thank you so much, Sun Devil Nation, for banding together and showing the great things that this fanbase and community is capable of doing.
Secondly, like any good team, we're not resting on our laurels. We've raised the bar and are now shooting to raise 10,000 meals.
Here's how you can help.
Drop off your canned goods and other non-perishable items at Cactus Sports in Tempe. Cactus Sports is located at 401 S. Mill Ave # 106, which is on the far north end on the east side the the street, next to Rula Bula.
While there, be sure to pick up some ASU gear, because there's no better spot for that than Cactus Sports. We give a big thanks to Troy Scoma for graciously allowing his store to be a drop off location.
Did you know that just $1 results in St. Mary's being able to provide seven meals to those in need? You do now. So yes, that means if you give just $25, you are giving 175 meals. That's doing good work.
Every dollar counts, and you can donate directly to St. Mary's Food Bank through their own secure site here.
Whatever the amount of your donation, we ask that you select "Donor Entered Amount" and end it with 42 cents. For example, $25.42, as this helps us track the success of the food drive (and throws in a 42. Can never have too many 42s).
Come on, Sun Devils. Let's keep up this incredible effort and and make an even greater difference this holiday season. We can do it.
