Central Arizona CCIM chapter members volunteered recently at Feed My Starving Children in Mesa.

     PHOENIX, ARIZ. (June 1, 2021) – For the Central Arizona chapter of CCIM, it was an opportunity to once again network in person while at the same time, and more importantly, give back to the community.

More than 20 members of the chapter gathered in May to volunteer at Feed My Starving Children in Mesa. During its 2-hour shift, the Central Arizona chapter of CCIM packed 60 boxes.

That represented 12,960 meals that will feed 34 kids for one year.

Many of the chapter members brought their own children and families. They gathered after the event for an in-person get-together.

“It’s an incredible experience to join together for an event like this, knowing you’re impacting the lives of so many children,” said chapter President Todd Hamilton, CCIM, SIOR, with Citywide Commercial. “I’m so proud to be a part of the Central Arizona CCIM chapter. The best and brightest commercial real estate professionals working side by side for a great cause.”

Feed My Starving Children is a nonprofit organization dedicated to seeing every child whole in body and spirit. It works with food distribution partners that stay with communities for the long term, empowering them to move from relief to development.

Feed My Starving Children meals are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition. The organization estimates that at least 6,200 children die each day from causes related to undernutrition.

May’s chapter gathering is just one of many in-person events it is planning for the remainder of 2021.
