GET to Give with AZ Helping Hands

June 7, 2016

Despite having the best intentions, sometimes finding the time to volunteer is difficult. That is why we at GET Phoenix Young Professionals are dedicated to providing you with opportunities to volunteer at a variety of organizations. This month, GET is partnering with Arizona Helping Hands, an organization that supports foster and indigent families.  


In addition to helping fulfill basic needs, school supplies and birthday dreams for foster kids, Arizona Helping Hands also connects families with other resources and programs. We will be taking a facility tour and then helping select and wrap toys, books and gifts for children in foster care.


We know you want to do more for the kids…and it is surprisingly easy! Bring one (or more – the choice is yours!) new unwrapped toy, game, book, personal item, or back to school supply for a child age 12 and under. Everyone who brings an item will be entered in a raffle!


Not sure what to bring? Check out the details below. We ask that everyone bring at least one item.


Birthday Gifts

AZHH provides birthday gifts throughout the year for foster children to make their birthday a special day. Event attendees will have the opportunity to wrap, personalize and decorate these gifts to add a special personal touch. Toys should be new, unwrapped and for a girl or boy under the age of 12. Here’s our idea list:

  • Barbies

  • Hotwheels

  • Board or card games

  • Puzzles

  • Legos

  • Stuffed animals

  • Coloring books

  • Craft kits

  • Science kits

  • Play doh

  • Disney, minion, Star Wars or superhero toys

  • Sports equipment


School Supplies

Each summer, AZHH distributes backpacks filled with school supplies. Help support by bringing any school supplies from the list below and/or a backpack:

  • #2 Pencils

  • Markers

  • Colored Pencils/Crayons

  • Glue Stick

  • Pencil Sharpener

  • 12 Inch Ruler

  • Eraser

Personal Supplies

Foster kids frequently are placed in care with NOTHING but the clothes on their backs. 

To alleviate this burden, AZHH provides personal care packs that include essential toiletries. Support by bringing age appropriate shampoo, body wash, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, hairbrush, lotion, etc.
