Zanes Law to Serve 800 Meals to Hungry Tucson School Children Zanes a proud participant in No Hungry Kids Tucson pilot project
Tucson, Ariz. (May 20, 2014) – This summer, Zanes Law is thrilled to be providing 800 meals to Roskruge Bilingual Magnet Middle School students through its sponsorship of No Hungry Kids Tucson, a pilot project which seeks to provide food during the summer break to children who rely on school-supplied meals.
"No child should go without food, especially not our children here in Tucson. As a parent and as a community member, I wanted Zanes Law to be involved in this pilot project because I know it will create immediate change in a short amount of time," said Claudia Zanes, co-founder of Zanes Law.
As a part of their contribution, Zanes will also open two of their offices to the public as drop-off locations for donations beginning May 19 through July 26:
3501 E. Speedway Blvd., Suite 101
1185 W. Irvington Road, Suite 155
Non-perishable food items needed for No Hungry Kids Tucson include:
Peanut butter & jelly
Macaroni & cheese
Ramen noodle soups
Other canned goods
Nadia Valle, a leader in this pilot project and founder of Wings for Women, notes that any and all food donated will help but stresses the importance of "easy to make food" for the children. Valle, who started Wings for Women, an organization that empowers homeless and impoverished women to overcome despair through various resources, programs and guidance, highlights that No Hungry Kids Tucson is an extension of that mission and is excited to have Zanes Law be a sponsor.
"Claudia and Doug Zanes, as well as their staff, have always been supportive of Wings for Women and the work that we do with homeless and impoverished women and children in the community. We could not do a lot of the projects we do without the support of the community and businesses like Zanes Law. We appreciate everything that Zanes Law does for us," Valle said.
Zanes Law and its owners, Doug and Claudia Zanes, are proud supporters of Wings for Women and will be continuing their work with them by co-hosting the Wings for Women Fall Gala.
