Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center will sponsor the fourth annual Nativities of the World fund-raiser on November 29 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and on November 30 from 12 – 3 p.m. The nativity scenes, which will be displayed at Desert Foothills Library, will be on loan from local community residents.

In 2013, more than 100 nativity scenes were featured at the library, which is located at 38443 N. School House Road in Cave Creek, Ariz. The nativities, created by artists from around the world, were made from every material imaginable.

“We hope our neighbors will continue to expand this tradition and benefit the Foothills Food Bank, which serves an ever increasing population in need,” says Pam DiPietro, executive director of Foothills Food Bank. “Please help us by loaning us your nativity set or sets. We welcome any and all nativities that you wish to share with our community.”

Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center serves the communities of north Phoenix, north Scottsdale, Rio Verde, Cave Creek, Carefree, Desert Hills, New River, Anthem, northwest Phoenix and Black Canyon City.

A home listed on a metropolitan Christmas lights map will serve as a donation location to benefit the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center. The home, which will showcase 75,000 lights synced to music, is located at 6726 E. Dixileta Drive.

The lighting display and food donation drop-off will be open to the public from 6 – 9 p.m., Sundays through Thursdays and from 6 – 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“For years, we have been giving joy to those who have seen and heard about our display,” says homeowner Todd Rooker. “This year, we decided we would give those who experience it the opportunity to give back. We will be putting a donation box out to collect canned food for Foothills Food Bank in Cave Creek.”

The display will begin on Thursday, November 27, 2014.
