Paradise Valley UMC has partnered with several faith communities (listed below) in this annual food drive to mark the anniversary of 9/11 in a constructive and collaborative way. Organized by the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona, the event shares a theme common to all Abrahamic faith traditions: caring for the needy among us.

The Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona and our Food Drive Partners (listed below) are planning a 5th Annual Multi-faith Food Drive to support two small food banks, the Cultural Cup Food Bank, and Extended Hands Food Bank

See the Facebook event posted on the church page and share it with your network of Facebook friends.
