What Is Feeding Arizona? Latest Event Makes a Big Impact
August 16, 2022
Feeding Arizona is a very special event Phillips Law Group organizes that is especially near and dear to the hearts of its team members.
But what exactly is Feeding Arizona? In a nutshell, it involves bringing goods and services directly to the homeless in our own backyard – and hopefully, making a big difference in the process.
At the beginning of planning, a Feeding Arizona event involves volunteers first preparing bags of items to bring to the homeless in the Phoenix area, then bringing those items straight to those unhoused individuals in their community. The items given out include clothes like socks, hats, and shirts, as well as hygienic products.
But that’s not where this important work ends. During a Feeding Arizona event, volunteers with Phillips Law Group and its event partners also hand out meals to the homeless and offer other services on the ground – including haircuts, manicures, facials, and more.
During the most recent Feeding Arizona opportunity, nearly 30 volunteers – with a little over 20 from the Phoenix Phillips team – helped hand out more than 300 meals to the homeless.
The food was provided by Carolina’s Mexican food and included delicious beef and chicken tacos, rice and beans, and more. Even pets of the homeless were included, since dog food was also available to individuals who might need it for their furry friends!
Perhaps the greatest impact made by Feeding Arizona volunteers was in the hearts of the individuals who were assisted on August 13. Volunteers said unhoused people who came for the event got emotional after receiving basic care that many take for granted – a haircut might seem like a small thing to most, but to our homeless neighbors, it can make them feel seen again.
After all, the true goal of a Feeding Arizona event is to make our unhoused neighbors feel seen and loved and a part of the community we all share. Partners like Carolina’s, Studio 32 Grooming Lounge – which assisted with providing haircuts – and Restore, Rebuild, Renew, all assisted in that ultimate goal.
The latest Feeding Arizona experience is one that the volunteers who took part in it will remember for a long time. More volunteers are always needed and welcome, so keep an eye on this space and the Phillips Law Group social media accounts to be the first to hear about our next event. You never know the impact you could make.
“Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you know.”
