AFR Phoenix gives back with a client in tow at St. Vincent de Paul! After a tour of their facility and the new Ozanam House Resource Center, the 19 of us (AFR + CEO) peeled 15 50 lb. cases of potatoes. That’s 750 lbs. of potatoes!!!! This activity will take care of all the yield they need to serve hundreds of families in the special family only dining room on Thanksgiving Day. This is also the ONLY meal of the year where the potatoes are peeled. While there might be a few sore hands in our facility tomorrow, there are many full hearts!

We are also working on a food drive to help fill the pantry of SVdP during the month of December with a few of our key clients in the Phoenix market! Thank you, Team Phoenix, for continuing to be awesome!
