Charity Events With AZRD
Arizona Roller Derby held a can food drive at our November home bout We collected can food for the Desert Mission Food Bank. Thanks to all your help we were able to donate 182 pounds of food to help those in need. We had the opportunity to tour the facility and see where the donations would be going!!
In December Arizona Roller Derby will be sponsoring a Christmas tree at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
We have been busy making ornaments for a roller derby themed Christmas tree. Hand making almost all of the items to be used. Phoenix Children’s Hospital has 50 Christmas trees around their campus to help make the holidays a little happier for those children who have to spend time in the Hospital. We are very honored to have the opportunity to help brighten the day of a sick child.
We will also be adopting a family for Christmas Through an organization called Save The Family. Feel free to contact us and donate some money to help make this Christmas spectacular for a family in need.
In January we are going to be collecting new and gently used towels for at risk and homeless veterans for Arizona Stand Down, an event that happens once a year in AZ. It is a three day event at Phoenix Memorial Coliseum. While its primary goal is helping homeless veterans access the resources needed, including housing, to regain their highest level of independence; its secondary goal is to bring our community and service providers together in a collaborative format that can build relationships throughout the year that positively benefit homeless veterans.
