DollarDays employee volunteers at Phoenix Rescue Mission

I wanted to share the wonderful experience Lynda (my wife) and I had this past weekend. We both volunteered at the Phoenix Rescue Mission's Back to School event. Around 600 families were provided filled backpacks, school uniforms, a free Thrift store with clothes, toys and bedding. Plus a nice box of food and a case of water.

Lynda and I were responsible for the last stop. Our first hour, while the first families were in a prayer service, Lynda and I packed 300+ boxes of food and staged all the cases of water. For the next 3 hours we passed out 600+ boxes of food!

I invite everyone to volunteer next year, it was a wonderful heartwarming experience. Here are a few pictures:
