V.H. Lassen Opens Community Pantry

V.H. Lassen Elementary School will be opening a community pantry on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020, to help families in the South Phoenix community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The pantry will be open to the South Phoenix Community students and families every Thursday, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. and will offer community members the opportunity to receive free supplies. Items available at the community pantry include non-perishable food items, cleanliness and health supplies, including face masks and sanitizer, and fresh produce when available.

This pantry is in partnership with 104.7 KISS F.M.’s Love Up Foundation, Valley of the Sun United Way, St. Mary’s Food Bank and Spaces of Opportunity Community Garden.

Big shout out to our very own V.H. Lassen Social Worker, Ms. Tiffany Hughes! She has been working tirelessly to meet the needs of the Lassen families and at the same time holding district trainings and running a Community Pantry! Tiffany has also developed a strong relationship with KISS F.M. and the #LoveUp foundation to create lasting partnerships with Lassen and our community. Thank you, Tiffany for all of your positivity and hard work!
