Be a Summer Action Hero!

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

CBS 5’s Pay It Forward campaign is teaming with Papa Murphy’s Take N’ Bake Pizza to help Arizona’s most vulnerable.

During the summer months, thousands of Valley children out of school often go hungry without access to free or reduced lunch programs. Struggling families turn to St. Vincent De Paul as a lifeline during the tough summer months for emergency food boxes, meals and bill assistance.

According to the organization, as the need for help increases during the summer, donations drop creating crisis-level food supply.

After a special phone bank on June 22nd, our generous viewers helped the 2017 Summer Action Hero campaign raise more than $70,000 for families in need this summer.

Thank you to our sponsors, Wells Fargo, The Arizona Lottery, Papa Murphy's Take N' Bake Pizza and Valley Honda Dealers for their support of CBS 5's Pay It Forward program.
