Cause Marketing Partnerships

Just like our generous donors and hardworking volunteers, these organizations have partnered with Valley of the Sun United Way to unite against homelessness, to unite against hunger, to fight for the success of children, and to fight for financial stability in the Valley. By shopping with these businesses, you’re taking the steps to join us, to Unite Against the Cycle of Poverty. These businesses are dedicating a portion of their proceeds to United Way. It’s an easy and fun way to give back and benefit your community.

Fair Trade Cafe will run a month-long promotion to erase hunger in the classroom in partnership with United Way! Starting May 14 through June 30, you can stop at Fair Trade (1020 N. 1st Ave.) and donate $1, $2 or $5 to erase hunger in classroom for students in our community. All funds raised will provide WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks for students in Maryvale.

Every little bit counts and when supporters of United Way shop at, the donations quickly add up. It’s super easy to help ensure kids in the Valley succeed by shopping the world’s largest marketplace. Remember, only purchases at will provide donations, purchases on or the mobile app do not donate.

Use your Fry’s V.I.P. card every time you shop and you can help end hunger with United Way.

If you don’t have a V.I.P. Card, go to the customer service desk at any Valley Fry’s Food and Drug stores.
