At our first meeting of the New Year on Monday, January 11 in the Navajo Room of Sun Lakes Country Club, 25601 Sun Lakes Boulevard at 7:00 p.m., there will be two speakers, Jan Terhune, the Executive Director of Matthew’s Crossing and Pati Urias of the Children’s Action Alliance. Jan Terhune will speak about the work of Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank and our monthly contributions of food and money. Pati Urias is the Communications Specialist of the CAA which is an “independent voice for Arizona children working to improve children’s health, education and security.”
At all club meetings, non-perishable food items are collected for the Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank. Collections take place on meeting nights in the west parking lot from 6:30-7:00 p.m. There is also a collection box at the north entrance of the Sun Lakes Sunset Grill lobby. Thanks to your generosity the total collected during 2014 was 1,880 lbs. of food and $170. Through November of 2015, 2,139.5 lbs. of food and $376. Thank you and congratulations Sun Lakes Democrats, you topped last year’s totals!
Everyone is welcome at Sun Lakes Democratic Club meetings which are always on the second Monday of each month. Refreshments are served.
