We’re thrilled to have been able to serve our community in so many ways over the past few years, and eager to assist more people in the years to come!
These are a few of the success stories we have been blessed to be a part of.
Mesa Hydration Campaign
Partner and drop off location for the Mesa Hydration Campaign, focused on ensuring that the vulnerable populations of Mesa are hydrated in the hot summer months.
Supported over 70 local children each Christmas since 2017 by providing Christmas gifts for them. Children were identified by their school social workers, and would not have had Christmas gifts otherwise. Gifts were individually selected from wish lists and wrapped for a truly personal experience for each child.
