PHILANTHROPY

Angry Crab Shack Happily Donates to Food Banks

Angry Crab Shack, locally owned and operated, recently donated a combined $20,000 to United Food Bank in Mesa and St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix to help them feed the drastic increase of hungry Arizonans in need they’ve experienced since the pandemic began. This monetary donation produced 120,000 meals to help families put food on the table. Giving back to the community is a core value of the seafood restaurant group, which last year donated more than $145,000 to Arizona charities.

Barro’s Pizza Supports Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children

Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi donated proceeds from the sale of all lunch specials for the month of June from all Barro’s Pizza locations in the Valley to Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. According to recently reported results, they reached their goal of donating $40,000. ACFC is a local nonprofit whose mission is to help Arizona families with the high costs and challenging logistics while caring for their children during cancer treatment. With this year’s contribution, Barro’s Pizza has now raised more than $140,000 for ACFC, successfully reaching its fundraising goal for five years in a row.

PPE Donations by UofA Med School and IRIS USA

Surprise-based IRIS USA recently donated more than 11,000 masks to The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. This donation came about thanks to a student-led initiative started by second-year student Kylie Kilian, who had been sewing cloth face masks herself to donate to those in need. As she recruited more students to help, it quickly grew into a much larger operation, which has since provided donated masks and other necessities to the Navajo Nation, the Refuge Health Clinic and other hard-hit populations. IRIS USA was impressed by the selfless actions of these students and was happy to aid their efforts through this donation.
