CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnTrac is proud to
support St. Vincent de Paul in its effort to help Arizona's hungry
families this holiday season.

St. Vincent de Paul will team up with KNIX 102.5's morning show team,
Ben and Matt, to host the Million Can Crusade.

Vincent de Paul Executive Director Steve Zabilski said. "But every

all the bills are paid, they can still put food on the table."

OnTrac will be sponsoring 250 boxes across the state of Arizona. The
boxes will be placed throughout 119 Safeway stores and Desert Schools
Federal Credit Union locations throughout the Valley.

"We are truly grateful to be part of the Million Can Crusade for the
third year in a row," OnTrac Vice President of Marketing and Public
Relations Laura Peterson said. "They are a dedicated organization and
make a real difference in our community. We are happy to be able to

The Million Can Crusade Kick-Off event took place this morning,
November 1, in Mesa, Arizona. There will be additional events across
the valley all month.

In addition to OnTrac, Safeway and Desert Schools Federal Credit Union
locations across the state are participating. Donations of canned foods
can be dropped off at Safeway locations, while monetary donations can
be made at both Safeway and Desert Schools.

The food donated will help fill the shelves of St. Vincent de Paul's
network of over 80 parish-based food pantries in central and northern
Arizona. Last year, food pantry volunteers delivered nearly 400,000
food boxes to hungry families.
