Cardinals’ Johnson donates 22,000 cans of soup to St. Mary’s Food Bank
Cardinals running back David Johnson took some time out to give back to the community on Tuesday, as he visited St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix and donated more than 22,000 cans of Campbell’s Chunky Soup to the organization in order to help Arizonans struggling with hunger.
I’ll tell ya one thing…getting to spend your day giving back to the community by donating over 22,000 cans of @Campbells soup is truly a blessing. S/O to @CampbellsChunky , @AZCardinals @Albertsons & @Safeway for helping #TackleHunger in our backyard! #FootballisFamily pic.twitter.com/dUKTxvorLV

Johnson, along with Cardinals mascot Big Red and some of the team’s cheerleaders, also helped to pack soup cans into the emergency boxes that St. Mary’s distributes every month.
Thank you again to @CampbellsChunky, @AZCardinals and @DavidJohnson31 for spending time with us today! The donation of 22,000 cans is going to make a HUGE impact for Arizonan’s in need. David jumped on the line and even had time for a quick tour. Thanks again!! #TackleHunger pic.twitter.com/DPvDgRn2jH

This is not the first time that the three organizations have partnered up for good, as last season, Campbell’s donated 30 cans of soup to St. Mary’s for every tackle the Cardinals made on defense during the 2018 season.
