Scottsdale Trolley Food Drive


Food supplies at Vista del Camino are at an all time low, even after a successful Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program. Now, more than ever, Vista needs our help to replenish the food supply to help needy families in Scottsdale.

Scottsdale's Downtown and Neighborhood Trolleys want to help!

During the week of February 7 through 14, every trolley on both routes will have boxes on board for riders to donate nonperishable food items. The boxes were donated by local Napa Auto Parts stores.

You can also drop off donations at the following locations:

Vista del Camino, 7700 E. Roosevelt Street
Loloma Transportation Station, 7084 East 2nd Street
Scottsdale's Downtown Office, 4248 N. Craftsman Court
Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granite Reef Road
Paiute Neighborhood Center, 6535 E. Osborn Road

Additional help for the food drive is being provided by the Mayor's Youth Council, which working with students from Saguaro and Coronado high schools to collect food. Students from Supai Middle School also are holding their own food drive during this time to assist Vista del Camino.

For more details on the Trolley Food Drive, contact Madeline Clemann at 480.312.2732 or
