This spring, 24 MC Companies properties in Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma hosted a Spring into Action Food Drive for their residents, collecting almost 6,000lbs of donations, equalling nearly 5,000 meals, for those in need.
MC Companies has been a partner with Move For Hunger since 2020, and has done a fantastic job encouraging their properties to stay engaged in the fight against hunger! Last spring was the first time MC Companies hosted a food drive campaign for their properties, providing over 9,400 meals to food insecure families and individuals. The property that collected the most donations in 2021, The Place at Savanna Springs, even won Community of the Month for April 2021!
This year, the top collector was the MC Companies Corporate Office, which is based in Scottsdale, Arizona. They collected 580lbs of donations, providing over 480 meals to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. Thanks to S&M Moving Systems for transporting the donations!
In a close second place, The Place At Forest Ridge, located in Flagstaff, Arizona, collected over 540lbs! This will provide 450 meals to the Flagstaff Family Food Center.
Third place goes to The Place at Fountains at Sun City, located in Sun City, Arizona. They collected nearly 500lbs of donations, equalling over 400 meals. Thanks to Atlantic Relocation Systems for transporting the donations to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance! The Place at Fountains at Sun City also won Community of the Month in December 2021 for collecting over 500lbs of donations during their Trick or Can Food Drive.
We love seeing the impact MC Companies properties are making on their local communities, especially considering there are nearly 300,000 food insecure individuals in Arizona and over 4 million in Texas.
