The center collected over 300 pounds to donate to United Food Bank

PHOENIX, AZ- November 24, 2010. While you nod off into slumber, one out of every eight children in the United States under the age of 12 is going to bed hungry every night. That’s why Valley Sleep Center initiated the Go to Bed Fed food drive.

On November 14th, the sleep center donated over 300 pounds of non-perishable food items for the United Food Bank. During the first two weeks of November, Valley Sleep Center’s staff, the public and patients all took part in donating for the cause to fight childhood hunger.

Lauri Leadley, president and owner of Valley Sleep Center said. “A growling tummy can definitely keep you up at night. If we can help one more child go to bed fed through a simple food drive, we’ll do it.”
