Breaking the glass wall At Foothills at Food Bank & Resource Center

Cave Creek, Arizona – Small glass tiles will reveal more than just a creative wall as part of the expanding Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center – it also will be a reflection of the love donors have for the busy, growing food bank.

The tiles will be etched with the donor’s name and become part of a one-of-a-kind wall mural. The tiles will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Each glass tile is $150 and 1,000 tiles are available to the public. Donors can pay for their tile(s) via cash, check, credit card or PayPal. Funds raised from the effort will be used to offset the payment due for the food bank’s new addition. The addition will provide a central location to pick up needed food items. It also will serve as a resource center to help people with a hand up and not a hand out. DiPietro says the main building now will have much needed warehousing space. The glass mural effort got underway on June 24, 2016.
