Steve and Robyn Moody, 2020 Co-Chairmen
Oakwood Unit 36C (Diamond Lake) would like to thank the many Sun Lakes residents for their generous donations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your generous support to AZCEND, our local food bank in Chandler, was nothing short of amazing! We were able to collect $3,650 in cash/checks and online donations and 3,327 pounds (72 milk crates) of food items for a grand total of 5,320 meals served! When we met with Dara Gibson, Development Director of AZCEND, she was overwhelmed with the amount of our donations during these pandemic times. Our donations really made a difference, especially this year!
Keeping safe during the pandemic was our priority, so the steering committee made the decision to form an alternative plan to only have holidays lights (no luminarias this year) and expand the food item donation from one dedicated weekend to the entire holiday season. Sun Lakes typically provides the most donations during the holiday food drives, and this year was no exception! Thank you, Sun Lakes!
