Civilian and military members of 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern) spent six hours feeding Tucson homeless at the Casa Maria Soup Kitchen in Tucson, Ariz., 27-28 March.

Over the course of two days, 14 members of the organization put together approximately 900 sack lunches, distributed 200 bags of food for needy families, and served more than 400 cups of soup.

“I think it is important for us as military members to get out into the community, give back, and show our appreciation to a city that has always been so supportive of us,” said Staff Sgt. Elvira Ortiz, 12th AF (AFSOUTH) Protocol.

The Casa Maria Soup Kitchen is located at 352 E. 25th Street and is open every day of the year from 8:30-11:30 a.m., except for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
