Featured Community Event

United Food Bank Turkey Drive

Through our Random Acts of Kindness program, Desert Financial supported food drive efforts across Arizona to ensure community members had food on their tables this Thanksgiving. We partnered with United Food Bank, providing $50,000 to match turkey donations during their drive. Our team members assisted in both the collection and distribution of turkeys, including handing out food boxes to 1,847 households on November 21, serving 8,467 individuals with that distribution alone. Households received a turkey, a stuffing kit, potatoes and other basic essentials like eggs.
