Taking care of a community is an effort that takes many people. As the saying goes, “It takes a village.” People and companies throughout the greater Phoenix area come together regularly to take action to end hunger and homelessness, ensure children succeed, and increase the financial stability of families to build up Maricopa County and make it a strong community.

It was an amazing site! Thousands of ASU students lined up at ASU’s Memorial Union on the Tempe Campus, raring to volunteer to help those less fortunate in the valley. Many students say they were helped growing up by organizations such as United Way. So they showed up to make a commitment throughout the school year to help others – to give back!
