Food Distribution for Families Impacted by Foster Care Presented by ASA Now.
Note: Registration closes at noon the day before distribution.
Caring for children impacted by foster care on a daily basis can be very stressful and difficult for foster and adoptive parents. This ultimately takes a toll on the family as a whole. ASA Now cares and understands and wishes to gift all families impacted by foster care with a food box to help offset the cost of your grocery bill.
Event Date & Time:
Thursday September 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th from 1 pm to 3 pm in Mesa and 4pm to 5 pm in Coolidge.
Mesa location pickup (1 pm - 3 pm): Jacob's Mission Community Center - 7830 E. University Dr. Mesa, AZ 85207. We are located on University between Sossaman Rd. and 80th St. on the north side of the street. Parking lot entrance is immediately east of the fire station and our building is located behind the fire station. Please drive around the back of the building to the door on the west side of the building and your food box will be placed in your trunk by our angel volunteers.
Coolidge location pickup (4 pm - 5 pm): The Closet - 679 W. Pima Ave.Coolidge, AZ 85128.
**COOLIDGE FAMILIES: We are in need of a volunteer or volunteers to pick up food boxes for the Coolidge area families. In the spring, we averaged 10 families in Coolidge signing up and we were barely able to squeeze the boxes into a minivan. An enclosed trailer or larger van would be ideal. When you register, you can select Coolidge as your pickup location, however unless we are able to find volunteers to transport the food, we will not be able to deliver it to Coolidge. If you are willing to help with this, please call us at 623-428-1592.**
Come prepared with a cooler or cooler bag to put frozen or refrigerated food into. We will not know exactly what we are getting until we pick items up, but we typically receive shelf stable foods, bread, produce, refrigerated, and frozen items.
We understand that emergencies happen. If you are unable to pick up your food, please send someone in your place and let us know who will be coming.
If you are unable to attend and cannot make arrangements for someone to pick up for you, you MUST notify us ahead of scheduled pick-up time and we ask that you give us as much notice as possible by calling 623-428-1592. Be sure to leave a voicemail or text if we don't answer. Failing to pick up your food box or not notifying us ahead of time will exclude you from future food box events.
Our donors and volunteers love feedback. If ASA Now has blessed your life, please take a minute to leave a positive review on Google and/or on our ASA Now Facebook Page or email us at Hope@asanow.org with your testimonial.
