2022 Doran Barro Holiday Hunger Fight Raises Nearly $415,000 for St. Mary’s Food Bank
We appreciate every customer who came to one of our locations on December 6th to help fight hunger in Arizona. This was our eleventh year hosting the Doran Barro Holiday Hunger Fight which raised nearly than $415,000 for St. Mary’s Food Bank.
“We can’t thank you enough for their loyalty and support this year and every year for the last 11 years,” said Mike Barro co-owner of Barro’s Pizza. “Each December we honor our mother, Doran Barro, by donating one hundred percent of our sales at all our locations to St. Mary’s Food Bank. This year we blew our previous record out of the water by almost $85,000 – we are so grateful to our customers!”
One hundred percent of all sales on Dec. 6, 2022, from 46 Barro’s locations in both Phoenix and Tucson donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank to help those in Arizona facing hard times during the holidays. With this year’s contribution, Barro’s Pizza has now raised more than $2.5 million which equals almost 17,500,000 meals for Arizona’s hungry and every dollar raised equates to seven meals served. The Doran Barro Holiday Hunger Fight is St. Mary’s Food Bank’s largest cause-related marketing effort each year.
“In this year when so much strain has been put on our Food Bank’s resources, for the Barro family and their loyal customers to support the Doran Barro Holiday Hunger Fight with a record total is just incredible,” St. Mary’s President and CEO Tom Kertis said. “We so appreciate the Barros for helping St. Mary’s feed so many struggling families and make their holiday season a little brighter.”
