Desert Duffers Aids Families in Need

Thomas Sharples

Through the tenth annual fundraising event, the Quail Creek Desert Duffers Golf Association was able to make holiday contributions to local service agencies. Contributions by membership was able to provided donation to the Green Valley Food Bank and the Sahuarita Food Bank, a newer service agency. The Sahuarita Food Bank has grown over recent years to provide over 15K meals a week serving over 200 local households. Additionally, during the school year, they provide weekend nutrition backpacks for 450 students in eight area schools and coordinate a local community garden. Administrator Penny Pestle was on hand at Quail Creek to meet the Duffers and accept the contribution and she was most appreciative of the efforts.
