>52nd Week Update – Miles Neighborhood Food Collection Projectby Peter Norback on Jan. 04, 2010, under Life
Happy Anniversary everyone!
Time appears to be on our side in a number of ways which is a very good thing. A year doesn’t seem like a year yet others see our longevity and success and decide to get involved. I believe we have created a paradigm shift or change in a fundamental way we think about helping the hungry. It’s everybody’s problem and everybody can help a little each week.
Just the Facts
The great thing about the numbers in the annual summary is they represent us, The Miles Neighborhood feeding hungry folks here in Tucson one whole year…lots of folks…more than 2,300 folks and we fed them three meals in one day. Then there’s the money. Our $1,953.38 donation over the year translated into $17,580.42 (1$ = $9) in Community Food Bank food and services. Hope you are proud of yourselves because you should be and I’m very proud of you, too.
Meeting with Bobby Rich at Mix-FM and Other News
Later this week I plan on calling Bobby Rich to talk about One Can A Week and how we can help each other do more for the needy here in Tucson. Also, I have to get back to the Ron Abbott at the Rincon Market to see what our next steps will be.
Ward 5 Offices on South Park
Council Member Richard G. Fembres, our neighbor and staunch supporter of the Community Food Bank, just invited Ward 5 neighbors and businesses to a Ward 5 Dialogue Event on Thursday, January 14th from 5 pm. to 7 pm. The offices (pictured above) are located at 4300 S. Park Avenue just south of E. Ajo Way. It’s a great way to meet your neighbors, get a little more involved in our neighborhood happenings or just check out the fine looking layout. Mark your calendars and hope to see you there.
