The Story

Open Arms Care Center is the only foodbank in Gilbert, AZ. Open Arms provides food, personal hygiene products and other essentials to over 1,500 Gilbert residents every month.

What We Do

On the third weekend of every month, we collect non-perishable food items at MISSION.  Last year, we collected almost 50,000 pounds of food through our 3rd Sunday Charity initiative.
