Christmas in July

christmas in julyIn 2014, United Food Bank will be hosting the 8th Annual Christmas in July Food Drive!  This annual month-long food drive is also a friendly competition between East Valley Chambers of Commerce who encourage their members to donate food to help feed hungry families directly in the East Valley.  Prices are awarded to the Top Chamber, Top Business and other accomplishments.  All businesses are encouraged to participate (membership to a Chamber is not required).  As the hot summer months are food banks leanest times, this food drive helps to bring in some of that holiday spirit – even in the heart of summer!  For more information, go to the Christmas in July webpage or contact Melissa Forrester at 480-398-4464 or  If you would like to register your food drive, please fill out this form, save and email back to Melissa.
