The Association of Arizona Food Banks, a non-profit that supplies five regional food banks, has teamed up with businesses in the area to help hungry families this holiday season.

Donate $50 at Copenhagen Imports when buying your hip new sofa with Scandinavian design sensibilities and you can receive up to $400 off select merchandise. First Fidelity Bank branches will also be accepting donations of monies and non-perishable food items.
And you can really make a needy family's holiday sweet by buying a pie to be donated at any Coco's or Carrows while you order your own.
Or if you'd rather donate your time/energy, you can volunteer at the Mesa Cannery. For more information on this opportunity and to sign up, call (480) 839-4694.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
