County Supervisors Team-Up and Give Back
Date: 7/20/2016

FLORENCE – Supervisors Cheryl Chase (District 2) and Steve Miller (District 3) teamed up with the Arizona Farm Bureau today, arranging fresh meat donations to families in San Tan Valley. Both Supervisors are active board members of the Pinal County Farm Bureau. When asked about any San Tan Valley organizations that could use a donation, Chase immediately thought of Mary Gloria and the Pan de Vita organization.

The Pan de Vida Foundation’s Mission is to meet the basic human needs of the communities of Queen Creek and San Tan Valley while promoting self-sufficiency. Because the Pan De Vita organization doesn’t have a physical location in the area, or the resources to store and freeze meats, arrangements were made to have local families served by the organization to receive the donations and distribute within the community.

“It was wonderful to see and meet the families that will be directly impacted by this effort. They were gracious and appreciative of generosity provided by the Farm Bureau and Pan de Vita for making the arrangements,” said Supervisor Chase.

Steve Miller commented, “I am proud to be part of an organization that puts forth the effort to give back to our communities. This is just a small example of the impact the Farm Bureau has in the state of Arizona.”

The Arizona Farm Bureau is Arizona’s largest farm and ranch organization with membership that represents production agriculture throughout the state and the declared “Voice of Agriculture" in Arizona. Farm Bureau is an independent, non-governmental grassroots organization that analyzes problems and formulates action to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity, and social advancement and thereby to promote the national well-being.

Supervisor Chase represents Pinal County District 2, which encompasses most of San Tan Valley and parts of Florence. Born and raised in Arizona, she has served in various capacities of the county for nearly 25 years. Supervisor Miller is also an Arizona native, living in the county for over 40 years and currently represents District 3, consisting of Casa Grande and surrounding areas.
