Phoenix Rescue Mission seeks 1,500 Easter Baskets for Easter Community Celebration

Posted By on March 26, 2019

As Phoenix Rescue Mission’s annual Easter Community Celebration fast approaches on April 13, the Mission is in need of 1,500 pre-filled Easter baskets to help support its largest event of the year.

Serving more than 700 needy families and 1,500 children, the event will provide a much-needed lift for families enduring poverty in our community.  

Other Easter items needed include 5,000 filled Easter eggs for Epic Easter Egg Hunt and 700 food boxes for families to take home after event.

Arizona ranks among the worst states in the nation for homelessness. In Maricopa County alone, more than 25,800 people do not have a place to call home. Events like the Easter Community Celebration help alleviate some of the pain associated with being homeless and underprivileged.

Please deliver items and baskets to the Mission Donation Warehouse at 3440 W. Lewis Ave, Building A Suite G, Phoenix, 85009, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and no later than April 5.

Phoenix Rescue Mission provides Christ-centered, life-transforming solutions to persons facing hunger and homelessness. The non-profit Mission, which has been operating since 1952, is asking the public for support of its many programs designed to save lives, including Hope Coach Street Outreach, Homeless Emergency Services, Men’s Addiction Recovery Program and the new Changing Lives Center for Women and Children.
