Empereon-Constar Employees Join St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance To Help Feed Local Families

Phoenix, Arizona (December 16, 2015)Empereon-Constar employees recently partnered with St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance to help feed local families.  Almost two hundred employees and their families packed over 4,000 emergency food boxes to be distributed to local elderly, children, working families and the homeless.

“We would like to thank the nearly 200 volunteers from Empereon-Constar for joining us at the food bank,” said Jerry Brown, St. Mary’s Director of Public Relations. “We distribute more than 40,000 emergency food boxes to our client each month and could not get the job done without volunteers like those from Empereon-Constar who donate their time to those in need. Empereon-Constar’s annual commitment to the food bank shows their eagerness to be a partner in the battle against hunger.”

In Arizona, nearly 1 in 3 children, 1 in 5 Arizonans, and 1 in 7 seniors currently live in poverty.  In answer to this need, St. Mary’s Food Bank distributed almost 66 million pounds of food in fiscal year 2014-2015 to the elderly, children, working families and the homeless.

“Empereon-Constar is dedicated to strengthening the communities where we live and work,” said Travis Bowley, CEO, Empereon-Constar. “We encourage and benefit from strong employee volunteerism and are proud to support organizations like St. Mary’s Food Bank.”

"Our employees generously serve our communities and view volunteering their time to St. Mary’s Food Bank as a meaningful way to give back to the community,” said Yvonne Torrijos, Chief Marketing Officer of Empereon-Marketing. “Giving back is part of our culture of service.”
