Benevilla prepares for AZ Gives Day

Donation event starts at noon April 5

Posted

Benevilla, a premier West Valley family services nonprofit, has joined Arizona Gives Day 2022, a grassroots statewide day of giving inviting Arizonans to support their favorite non-profit causes by visiting www.azgives.org/Benevilla.

The campaign begins at noon Tuesday, April 5 and ends at noon Wednesday, April 6. Those who want to give early can make donations now.

This year, donations are needed even more as the evolving COVID-19 pandemic continues to change the way people live and the needs of the community. From the way adults work and learn to the way people gather and socialize; the crisis has impacted virtually everybody.

It has become especially hard for the West Valley older adult population struggling to remain independent at home. Donations received through this online platform will support the Benevilla, free to the community, Home Services Program.

There are approximately 254,000 West Valley residents who are seniors or adults with disabilities and many of them do not have a personal support network to assist them. Benevilla is continuing to meet the urgent needs of older adults in the West Valley with its volunteer driven Home Services program offering free grocery shopping assistance, phone pals, emergency errands (pharmacy), light handyman services and assisted transportation to vital medical appointments.

The Surprise-based nonprofit also is seeing a decrease in the number of able volunteers, as many are older adults themselves.

To jump-start this year's campaign, an anonymous donor has promised to match donations dollar-for-dollar to Benevilla up to the first $5,000 raised for Arizona Gives Day, therefore, doubling the impact of a gift.

Anyone who is passionate about their community, has family or friends who are older and struggling with the challenges of the living alone or just wants to make a difference in the est Valley community should participate in Arizona Gives Day.

Make your Arizona Gives Day donation online at www.AzGives.org/Benevilla or by calling 623-584-4999. For information, contact the Benevilla Donor Relations Department at 623-584-4999.

Started by the community and for the community in 1981, Benevilla is a not-for-profit family services agency dedicated to enriching the lives of West Valley residents by providing care services for older adults, adults with disabilities, children, and families.

AZ Gives Day, Benevilla, Surprise, April 5
