The Community Food Pantry of Benson, a chamber member and 501C3, is currently holding a raffle to raise funds for the Pantry. The Pantry is a volunteer organization run completely by donations. Their overhead includes building rental, trash, utilities and vehicle maintenance which is a whopping $2,651.55/month.Not only does the Food Pantry serve upwards of 700 people every Wednesday, also share food with the Benson Food Bank as well as St. Vincent DePaul. We recognize the importance of feeding the need of our community.

The Huachucans are sponsoring this annual charity drawing. A $10 dollar donation for a ticket gives the ticket holder a chance to win a grand prize of $1,000, with prizes in the amounts of $250 to $750 also to be awarded as part of a total prize pool of $8,000.

While 26 prizes will be awarded to ticket buyers, the true winner of the drawing will be the Community Food Pantry of Benson, since for each $10 ticket sold, the Food Pantry retains $8. The remaining $2 goes to The Huachucans to fund the following year’s drawing.

Point of contact for more information or raffle tickets is Najayyah Many Horses, cfpofbaz@gmail.com. or call (520) 200-5186.

We would also like to thank Eagle Plumbing and Tractor Supply, who donated straw and gravel to fix our driveway. Their interest in our time of need helped us to continue serving the community. And not to be overlooked, our many volunteers who give selflessly of their time.

Thank you.
