I have been active with Matthew’s Crossing for several years. I volunteered when this started as a small food bank giving food out of a church kitchen. It has been heartwarming to see this organization move forward to the excellent non-profit organization it is today. There have been many times when I have handed a bag of groceries to a person and seen the tears of gratitude running down their cheeks. There is no more joy for a volunteer than giving a teddy bear to a child and seeing their face light up and their eyes shine. My husband has served on the board of Matthew’s Crossing and we support all the good they are doing in our community. M &M Flinkman

I have been donating to Matthew's Crossing for two years and always receive help and gratitude from the volunteer staff. The recent move to a larger center has helped in having more storage area to accomadate the larger demand of clients who are in need of food and other supplies. The Kids Cafe project is trying to raise funds to be able to help children in need of a place to go after school is out. Any assistance to this project will be greatly appreciated. I have also volunteered in stocking bags for the supplemental food day. This is a very worthy cause and needed charity in our community. Aimee, the executive director is very knowledgable and thankful person to work with. Aimee is also very easy to communicate with if she is not available by phone, she can be reached by email. Aimee is dedicated to helping the those in need.

I am a member of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce and had the opportunity to meet the Executive-Director of Matthews Crossing. I work in the promotional field and have worked with them in many projects. I feel very strongly about how they are assisting families in and around the area. I give back a percentage of my commission to their worthy cause. It is a pleasure working with them and their volunteers.

I volunteered for this non-profit shortly after moving to Arizona, and was very impressed by the operation. I have volunteered for many non-profit organizations, and was struck by how hard every worked to make the Matthews Crossing food bank a success for their community. I was also surprised by the variety of people in need of the food bank services. People from every race, age, and socioeconomic background came to fufill a basic necessity for their families. I am still proud to contribute through food donations and would love to volunteer for them again.

The Great!

like them to expand their hours and operations to help as many people as possible. I especially want to see the upcoming Kidz Cafe become a reality. The kids will be provided with a healthy meal, tutoring and a safe, positive place to go after school.

Matthews Crossing began just a few years ago with an idea by an Episcopal Priest. It has since become independent from that church and has grown significantly with an all volunteer staff, except the Executive Director. It is the only food bank in Chandler, AZ that is open five days each week, and now it is open late hours also. They are now working to open a Kid's Cafe for dinner for students who receive subsidized breakfast and lunch at school. I was involved in their move from the church to rented space. We also donate to their food, shampoo, soap, etc. supplies.

The Great!

Seeing the faces of those it serves and reading the letters from some of those served regularly.

hope that it canrealize its full mission. Matthews Crossing is organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to not only serve the needy as a food bank, but also (1) operate a Kid's Cafe (as described above), (2) operate a health clinic where those who need can receive health and child care counseling and receive innoculations, and (3) function as a place where those looking for work can receive job training, application and resume help, and counseling for dressing and participating in interviews.
