TUCSON – The Winterhaven Festival of Lights wrapped up on Tuesday night.
It is one of the biggest food drives and fundraisers for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. Food bank spokesperson Kimberly Winker said this is a busy time of year because it can be so expensive.
“It’s very important for us to be able to help our community and get them the food they need,” Winker said. “The lines at the food bank are longer this time of year.”
Vianey Peralta filled his SUV and drove through the festival on the only night cars were allowed. He made a donation on his way into the neighborhood.
“I grew up as an unfortunate child,” Peralta said, “and I got help when I was young. So I figured we would give back to the community.”
The food bank had raised about $20,000 and 39,000 pounds of food before the final night. Volunteers hoped they would hit 46,000 pounds.
