For over 20 years, our Tucson employees have had a holiday tradition of helping those who are in need. Each year M&A employees donate food to create 24 holiday food boxes for their next door neighbor, Holoway Elementary School. Leilani Bew (hydrochemist) spearheads this worthy cause at a school where more than 50 percent of families qualify for food stamps. The receiving families are selected by the school staff and the boxes are delivered (wrapped like a gift) to the families right before Christmas break. M&A donates a ham or turkey for each family in addition to the employee donated food items so families can enjoy a special holiday meal.
