The Be Thankful Food Drive has begun!
We are collecting through Sunday, November 19.

Yes, it's that time of year where we are so grateful for all that we have and this food drive allows us to help those who are less fortunate. Any non-perishable donation is appreciated.

Donations in Tempe will be given to Matthew's Crossing Food Pantry, Kyrene Resource Center, and to the Salvation Army. 

Please put only non-perishable food items in the large bin in the Tempe Narthex. The bin is marked indicating the drive. 

Thank you so much for your generosity! We appreciate your support!

Highest Need Non-Perishable Food Items Requested:

(Other non-perishable food items are also welcomed though)

  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Meat, such as Tuna Fish
  • Canned Vienna sausages
