Easter Community Celebration

Easter is the most important holiday on the calendar, and we need your help to make it a day the families we serve will never forget! And it's right around the the corner! Every year we invite low-income families across Phoenix to join us for a fun, carnival-like Easter event celebrating the triumph of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

This year we expect to distribute baskets to 1,200 children and 5,000 filled Easter eggs for our epic egg hunt - but we need your help to make that happen!

Please deliver your baskets to the Mission Donation Warehouse, 3440 W. Lewis Ave, Building A Suite G, Phoenix, 85009, Monday through Friday, between 8am and 4 pm by April 5th.

 

If you would like to receive assistance for this event, please contact Jussane at (602) 346-3372 or jcarrera@phoenixrescuemission.org to get registered. Spaces fill up quickly, so inquire about signing up as soon as possible!

How to Sign Up to Volunteer

Volunteer Opportunities: As one of our biggest outreach events of the year, we need a lot of volunteers! We could not do this without your help. Ready to get involved? Sign up at prm.volunteerhub.com, or contact Volunteer Services at volunteer@phoenixrescuemission.org or (602)346-3363.

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, please consider organizing an Easter basket drive or making a few on your own.

Interested in hosting a drive? Contact Catie, Gift-In-Kind Coordinator, at (602) 346-3347 or chammann@phoenixrescuemission.org
