Cactus Section IFT Gives Back to the Community

IFT ST Marys

In addition to being an organization that fosters business relationships and learning opportunities, Cactus Section IFT is an asset to the community. Recently, members of the Section gave back by attending the “Rock n’ Box” volunteer night at the St. Mary’s Food Bank Del Webb Distribution Center.

Before getting to work, members enjoyed a tasty dinner provided by the St. Mary’s CK (Community Kitchen) Catering group–a community resource that provides life skills and food service training for those without employment.

With full bellies, members created an assembly line and began packing emergency food boxes, which included canned goods, toiletries, and other nonperishable items. The team worked so efficiently that the assigned quota–18 pallets of food box–was competed in just a couple hours!

The good deeds of the Section didn’t stop there. President Holly Long also presented a $500 check to St. Mary’s on behalf of Cactus Section IFT. This amount provides 3500 meals to the community.

Thank you to all the members who volunteered their time to make this event a complete success!
