Donations needed for Phoenix Rescue Mission’s back-to-school event

Posted

Phoenix Rescue Mission, the Christ-centered nonprofit providing support and resources to underserved communities, announces its back-to-school community outreach event will return to an in-person format this year to serve an estimated 600 Arizona students free uniforms, shoes and school supplies.

The event will take place 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, July 23, at Kuban Elementary School, 3201 W. Sherman St. Students and families joining the event are referred by their local elementary schools in west Phoenix.

The nonprofit is accepting school supply donations at its warehouse, as well as purchases from its Amazon Charity List until July 18.  Items needed include as backpacks, gym shoes, writing utensils, hygiene items and school uniforms.

“As inflation continues to raise the prices of everyday essentials, many underserved members of the community may find that supplying their child for educational success is difficult,” said Ken Brissa, Phoenix Rescue Mission CEO. “We’re excited to alleviate these stressors for parents and give children the confidence and resources they need for a brighter future.”

Spanish-speaking volunteers are still needed for the event.
