WHO WE HELP
Alyssa James Foundation
We host a Kentucky Derby Event each year / Talk Derby To Me – to raise money for a cause near and dear to our hearts. We will have a silent auction, photo booth, DJ, live music, cigar roller, Southern food, live betting, and more. All proceeds will go to the cause or causes of our choice.
Blankets for Paws
Our annual blanket collection has kicked off for September and will go until November 2017. Deliveries will be made to the East and West Valley shelter locations. Our goal is to surpass last year’s 2016 drive with a goal of over 4,000 blankets! Thanks to our online giving forms, our supporters can donate from anywhere. Arizona has the second-highest kill shelter rate in the U.S., meaning our shelters are full. A donation toward a blanket can provide much for the animals. During the colder months, a blanket provides comfort and a reminder of the home they once had. Having a cozy blanket to cuddle with helps them feel secure and calm. You make the donation and we will purchase the warm, fuzzy and cozy blankets.
Camp Not-A-Wheeze is the premier asthma health education and recreation camp for children with moderate to severe asthma in the state of Arizona. Having celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2016, Camp Not-A-Wheeze helps educate families and children ages 7-14. The children and families learn about effective asthma management skills in a fun, recreational environment while inspiring them to live active, healthy lifestyles.
Csq Bio LLC
Csq Bio LLC has partnered with the Alyssa James Foundation to assist in raising money for stem cell research. The Alyssa James Foundation will raise funds toward stem cell therapy for people in need who are unable to afford this type of health service.
Talk Derby to me
Talk Derby to Me is a yearly fundraiser event. Join the fun and activities at this social gathering which includes a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, photo booth, DJ, live music, cigar roller, Southern food, live betting, and more. All proceeds go to a selected cause (or causes) for that year. Last year, we successfully raised funds for Operation Enduring Gratitude in support of our local veterans.
