Heading back to AZ Helping Hands!

June 26, 2017

Do you know what happens when we partner with an amazing local organization and execute one of the most successful GET to Give events to date? You do it AGAIN!

 

That's right, for the second year in a row, we are meeting at AZ Helping Hands to participate in fun activities, all benefiting foster children and families in Arizona.  

 

AZ Helping Hands is an incredible organization which, in addition to helping fulfill basic needs, provide school supplies and grant birthday dreams for foster kids, connects families with other resources and programs. 

 

Last year, our large group took a facility tour, helped sort supplies, assisted the warehouse volunteers with inventory and created personalized gift bags filled with hand-picked birthday presents to be delivered to deserving kids...and we had a blast doing it! Needless to say, we are so excited to join this great group of folks again in facility upkeep and in fulfilling birthday wishes.

 

In this rapid-pace era we live in, it can sometimes be tough to make time to give back, but AZ Helping Hands truly makes it easy and fun to do so.  Grab some school supplies to donate and join us at their facility on June 28, 2017 from 5:30-7:30pm.  You won't be sorry!  As a thank you to all of our willing volunteers, we'll meet up for an after party at O.H.S.O in North Scottsdale immediately following the event.  You'll get to enjoy complimentary eats, drink specials and networking time with a fine group of young professionals.

 

Not sure what to donate? Below is a general list of items needed to support foster children age 12 and under:

  • Backpacks

  • #2 Pencils

  • Markers

  • Colored Pencils/Crayons

  • Glue Stick

  • Pencil Sharpener​

*PRO TIP*
99¢ Stores are a great source for school supplies. You can purchase and fill a backpack with supplies for next to nothing!  Keep in mind, however, that every little bit helps.
