Last holiday season Matthew’s Crossing was the recipient of our companies food drive. This organization is community focused and we could clearly see the positive impact our contributions made. The Staff at Matthew’s Crossing is delightful to work with. They provided great stewardship in aligning their needs with our season of giving program, creating a very positive response from office staff. The level of professionalism of the staff and the ability to fill a need in the community place Matthew’s Crossing on the top of our list of organizations to support.
We own a teambuilding company and regularly hold philanthropic events where clients buy non-perishable food items, use them in a game, and then donate them. I had always donated to the larger food banks and then discovered Matthews Crossing - and there was no going back. At all times, I have found them to be warm, welcoming and helpful - especially when unloading 8,000 food items!! Keep up the great work!
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.
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.
