Community Easter Event

Our Community Easter Event to benefit low-income children and families is right around the corner! On March 24th, the Mission is expecting to serve over 1,000 children and over 700 families!

If you would like to participate and/or receive assistance at this event, please contact Volunteer Services at (602)346-3363 or volunteer@phoenixrescuemission.org. Open spaces tend to fill up quickly so inquire about signing up as soon as possible!

Our Greatest Need: This year, our greatest need will be for pre-filled Easter baskets to hand out to the children who will be coming to this event. If you want to help this outreach happen, but can't decide how you like to give, please consider organizing an Easter basket drive or making a few on your own.

Our goal is 1000 filled wrapped Easter baskets and 700 Easter Fill-A-Bag’s for low-income families in need. If you would like to participate in making Easter baskets or Food Boxes, below you will see a suggested list of items to include. If you have questions about getting started and involved, contact Catie at (602)346-3347 or chammann@phoenixrescuemission.org
