Pan de Vida Foundation Gets a Face Lift

Pan de Vida Foundation Gets a Face Lift

"The children in the new logo represent the children Pan de Vida supports and the bread is a reminder of the bread we share", says founder Mary Gloria. "It is also, a reminder of the need in the community for healthy food."

The new mission statement now reads: "To meet children’s, senior citizens’ and families’ basic needs while promoting self-sufficiency."

Pan de Vida Foundation is run by a volunteer base with no paid staff. All of the donations received go back to servicing the community members. Pan de Vida is always looking for volunteers and welcomes anyone 13 years and up to join their team. "There is something for everyone to get involved in", says Gloria.  "The kids and senior citizens garden, the community center, construction, building, our programs, our health festival, clinics, or even becoming a board member."

Throughout the years, Pan de Vida has:

  • assisted the hungry and homeless
  • created a Senior Citizen Center, in conjunction with the Town of Queen Creek
  • paid for park fields and lights to keep children off the streets
  • operated a food and clothing bank
  • THE CHRISTmas GIVING TREE providing children with gifts
  • street clean ups
  • hosted Spanish diabetes and breast cancer classes
  • and more all thanks to its donors.

Currently Pan de Vida is:

  • in the process of fundraising to build a Community Center in San Tan Valley
  • Revitalization of the Valley Sun Estates Neighborhood in San Tan Valley
  • supporting the kids and senior citizens garden
  • hosting an annual health festival-  including Dental, Visual screenings, and Social services
  • providing college scholarships to low income students
  • providing a family explorers program - offering new experiences to families, free or at a low cost
  • offering Grupo Mujer: Spanish Educational presentations to women
