18th Annual Phoenix Giving Day
Saturday, December 8th, 2018

Giving Day started 18 years ago when a small group of people gathered to make a difference over the holidays. We “sponsored” 25 families in need and delivered Christmas trees, lights, ornaments, presents, teddy bears, turkey dinners and grocery gift cards. When we saw the kids and their teddy bears, we were inspired! The next year, we had 50 families. Then 75, 100, 150 families. About 10 years ago, we started sponsoring entire schools in order to support more kids and their families. Please join us in making a difference in our 18th year!

WE ARE SUPPORTING: Irene Lopez Elementary School

We will have a holiday carnival involving different arts & crafts, activities, including a rock wall, and more! Each child will receive a teddy bear, an age appropriate gift and have their picture taken with Santa.
