12/9: Tis the Season for Holiday Promotions Benefiting AAFB and Arizona’s Food Banks


This holiday season, the Association of Arizona Food Banks (AAFB) is pleased to share many wonderful seasonal promotions and activities to support AAFB, our member food banks, and those struggling with hunger:
  • Give the Gift of Comfort at Copenhagen while Supporting AAFB: Now through January 19, donate a minimum of $50 at the point of sale, specifying that you want the donation to go to AAFB, and you will receive $200 off any Stressless seating or $400 off select Stressless Kensington, Mayfair or Chelsea recliners.
  • Donate Funds and Food at any First Fidelity Bank Branch: Help us fight hunger by making a financial contribution to AAFB at any First Fidelity Bank branch location through January 9.  While there, you can also drop off non-perishable food donations to benefit local food banks.
  • Get a Hunger Relief License Plate: More than 2,000 Arizona hunger fighters have, and you can too!  Makes a great gift!  Each plate purchase benefits AAFB and our member food banks that collectively serve all 15 Arizona counties.
  • Make a Secure Donation to AAFB – Makes a Great Gift: Donate before the end of the year and receive an Arizona tax credit if you qualify. You can even make a contribution in honor or memory of family members,
    friends, colleagues, or loved ones. Acknowledgements of your thoughtful gift – without the dollar amount listed – will be sent to your honorees if you wish.
