Q3 Social Good In Person Project - Mom's Pantry
The chapter is holding two in-person events this summer in Phoenix, so beat the heat and join us. Spots are limited for July 9th and August 13th for working volunteers at the facility, so register now. If you cannot help in person, you can still support us by participating in the food drive. Keep reading for how to get involved.
Mom's Pantry accepts donations for both food and money to help us meet our goals. Unless otherwise designated, 100% of donated funds are used towards the supply of food and hygiene items for distribution to our guests. No one in need is turned away. Facility and administrative costs are separately funded.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering! We appreciate you taking the time to serve with us. Volunteers have the opportunity of packing bags, stock shelves or check in guests, and more.
Volunteer hours are Saturdays 9:00 am – 2:30 pm. It is important to arrive promptly at 9:00 am as we have a meeting and discuss work assignments for the day. Mom’s Pantry is open to guests from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm on Saturday and 10:00 am – 1:00 pm on Sunday. We ask that volunteers stay until the end-of-day tasks are completed and until the last guest has been served and left the Pantry.
Mom’s Pantry allows children 9 through 15 years old to volunteer with their parents or guardian. Ages 16 and 17 may volunteer on their own. All prospective volunteers must complete a volunteer application and consent form for their age or the age of their children. These forms can be found online.
After you complete the first link above, anyone 18+ will receive an additional email to complete a background check if we do not already have a current one on file. Once the application and background check is approved, you will be contacted by Mom's Pantry, through Christian Life Outreach, which is a Qualifying Charitable Organization in the state of Arizona. That means you can receive a tax credit of up to $800 for contributions made to Mom’s Pantry using the QCO code 21059. Mom’s Pantry is a community food bank located at 13440 N Cave Creek Road in Phoenix, Arizona 85022. In addition to the 200 plus families we serve locally each weekend, we are also helping to supply food and assistance to The Phoenix Dream Center, Short Creek Dream Center, and Thrive, an organization dedicated to foster care prevention, reunification, and age-out housing programs, other food banks in the Phoenix area, and homeless events throughout the valley. Mom’s Pantry is a hub for food distribution throughout the valley. This September, we need your help to Feed Arizona through our 50/50 program. Our goal is to raise 50,000 pounds of food and $50,000 to feed those in need in the state of Arizona.
