Holiday Charity Drive

Food & Clothing Drive

October 13 - December 31, 2022

This year as we bounce back from our forced hiatus, EPAZ will be combining our golf tournament and holiday mixer.  Raffle donations are appreciated.  We will collect nonperishable food for St. Mary's Food Bank and gently used blankets, jackets & coats for Andre House of Hospitality. If you’ve had the opportunity to participate in one of our Community Service events, you know the level of impact we make as a team.  In 2019 we collected and donated 778 lbs of food and $1,475 in cash.

We will begin the charity drive in October through the end of the year.  We encourage you to setup collections within your office and EPAZ's Community Service Committee will happily pick it up and deliver it to the charities for you.  We will also except donations at our upcoming events:

  • October 13 - Technical Luncheon Meeting at SRP Pera Club
  • November 10  - Technical Luncheon Meeting at SRP Pera Club
  • November 30 - Scholarship Golf Tournament at TopGolf Scottsdale
  • December 8 - Recycling Tour at City of Phoenix North Gateway Transfer Station

During our events we'll be hosting a raffle and a ticket will be given for each item or dollar donated to our chosen charities. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the events or prepurchased online. Cash donations actually stretch your dollar further than what is purchased at a grocery store. In fact, $1 provides enough food for 7 meals for our hungry neighbors.   


Andre House of Hospitality

The Andre House of Hospitality is an organization dedicated to serving the basic needs of the homeless population in Phoenix through the provision of food, clothes, and showers.  Please start collecting items of clothing that you would like to donate.  Coats, jackets, sweatshirts with hoods, socks and blankets are especially needed, however any clothing is appreciated.

Clothing can be dropped off at the Andre House of Hospitality (213 S. 11th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85007) or can be picked up by a volunteer from EPAZ.  Please call Rick Haskins at (480) 229-7757, if you should need clothing items picked up.

St. Mary's Food Bank

Known as the world's first food bank, St. Mary's Food Bank has been filling empty stomachs in the Arizona community for 50 years.  St. Mary’s is truly a community-based organization. Individual donors, corporate donors, and private grants help feed hungry individuals and families in our area. Serving 9 of Arizona’s 15 counties, we are committed to volunteerism, building community relationships and improving the quality of life for Arizonans in need.
