On December 29th, St. Vincent de Paul was flooded with Feed The Children staff and volunteers to help serve over 300 families with food boxes and personal hygiene items. And as families lined up to receive their boxes, they were greeted by none other than Phoenix Suns guard Leandro Barbosa (and the Gorilla, of course!).
To this day, I am amazed at the immense generosity of our Phoenix Suns team. Fresh off a big win from the L.A. Lakers, they were eager to roll up their sleeves and lend a helping hand. And as a great basketball player as Leandro is in the NBA, I believe he is an even better man. He is a terrific volunteer and role model for our community, and we were very blessed to have him participate in our Feed The Children event.
I invite you to take a look at this exclusive video of Leandro and share with your family and friends. A very special thank you to everyone who assisted St. Vincent de Paul that day in ensuring a successful event for Feed The Children, and providing much-needed relief to families in need.
