On Tuesday, March 17, Nan Lawson delivered a Dayspring check for $1,720.82 to the Tempe Community Action Agency (TCAA) to help with emergency food needs in our community. This money was raised from the children's Souper Bowl Sunday offering, weekly food baskets, and the Staff-Parish committee's Chili Cookoff. Thanks to all of you who contributed, Dayspring was able to respond quickly to help those affected by food shortages and loss of employment.
Below is a list of services that TCAA is able to bring to the Tempe community:
Tempe Community Action Agency
is offering a drive-through meal to go service Monday through Friday from March 16-27. This service is available to currently enrolled seniors. Meals to go will be distributed at the North Tempe Multigenerational Center, 1555 N Bridalwreath St, Tempe, AZ 85281 at the south entrance from 10 to 11 a.m. Seniors who are not enrolled should call 480-858-6511 for meals to go or call the Area Agency on Aging’s senior helpline at 602-264-4357 to register for home-delivered meals.
TCAA has stopped taking seniors to the grocery store during this time but will bring food boxes to enrolled seniors.
