Local specialty T-shirt sale seeks to raise funds for Arizona Housing Fund


The Russ Lyon Charitable Foundation, a subsidiary of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, is partnering with the Arizona Association of REALTORS to raise money for the Arizona Housing Fund.

The sales runs through Monday, May 18.

The Love Your Neighbor T-shirts are being produced by local Anton Sport and are $20. They are available online at russlyon.antonsport.com/russlyon/shop/home.

All the proceeds benefit the AZ Housing Fund, according to a press release. The Arizona Housing (AZHF) is a dedicated and sustainable revenue source that grants funding to the nonprofit agencies that build and operate Permanent Supportive, Low-Income and Working Poor Housing. Its equity grants will enable more housing units to be constructed, meeting the growing needs of Arizona communities with the goal of reducing homelessness.

For every shirt ordered the Russ Lyon Charitable Foundation will donate $10 to the Arizona Housing Fund.

“There has never been a more important time for everyone to come together and support the Arizona Housing Fund,” said Betsy Dickinson, president of Russ Lyon Charitable Foundation. “This foundation gives families a fighting chance to stay in their homes and helps others find housing.”

The Russ Lyon Charitable Foundation seeks to provide valuable and meaningful service work within communities as well as charitable investments.

Since the foundation began in 2014, more than $500,000 has been contributed towards various 501(c)3 Arizona-based organizations through direct donations, matching funds, sponsorships and fundraisers.
