After one of the fastest yet slowest years, we have finally made it to November and the beginning of the giving season. 2020 has been hard in many ways for many people and this year ZONA wants to do our part by giving back to those who have been affected the most by these hard times. We want to help end this crazy year on a happy note and spread some joy! Instead of raising just toy donations we decided to take it a step further and found Family Promise of Greater Phoenix.
Family Promise is more than shelter—they are hospitality in action. Their mission is to help families experiencing homelessness and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response. After talking to the amazing people over at Family Promise, we knew this was the place to support. Over the years Family promise nationwide has provided shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention and stabilization services to over 1 million family members. We love their values of believing families should stay together—not be separated—during the most difficult times in their lives. When we reached out to the location here in Phoenix we asked for the list of donations they don’t get as often so we can support in any way we can! They shared with us that the younger kids get the most donations and we could really help support the teenagers and parents.
There are a few ways to donate with us. First, purchase any of the above items (or anything else your heart desires) but it must be brand new. Next, drop off or deliver it to us here at ZONA.
It’s that easy! Have an amazon account? Great! Make sure to add a gift tag and put your name on it so we know who sent it!
As if donating to a great cause wasn’t good enough, we decided to give back to you guys as a thank you for helping us raise donations! ZONA is raffling off 5 AMAZING gift baskets that are detailed below. In order to qualify for our raffle gifts you must donate $20 or more in the items listed above. Again they must be brand new. Only one raffle entry per person, but please feel free to donate as little or as much as you’d like! Multiple entries per household accepted, just one per person. Must be 21+ to enter as some of our gift baskets include alcohol. Finally, you must be in Arizona or planning a trip to Arizona as we also include some services with these prizes too!
Drawing for the raffle will be done on Friday December 18th. Good luck!
