Central Arizona Project’s employee volunteer effort – CAP Turnouts – was named to the Phoenix Business Journal’s list of Top Corporate Volunteer Programs for the third year in a row.
CAP Turnouts demonstrates the first-hand difference a group of employee volunteers can make in a community. In the past, the group has repaired homes, fed the homeless, helped “differently-abled” children and made the holidays special for local families.
“It’s also a great way to have fun and to get to know one another in a unique way,” says Vicky Campo, CAP Turnouts co-chair. “In giving back, we really get just as much as we give.”In the new year, employees will continue to serve the community by volunteering time, energy and talents through these CAP Turnouts programs:
- Southwest Wildlife
- Habitat for Humanity
- Blood Drives
- CAST for Kids – introducing children with special needs to the joy of fishing
- Whisker Walk – taking a walk with dogs from the East Valley Animal Shelter
- Free Arts of Arizona – helping children heal from trauma through art
- New Life Center – collecting clothing for survivors of domestic violence
- St. Vincent de Paul – serving lunch to the homeless and working poor
- Desert Mission Food Bank
- The Healing Field – placing flags at the 911 Memorial at Tempe Town Lake
- Zoowalk for Autism Research
- Rebuilding Together – making home repairs for the widow of a veteran
- Singleton Santa – buying gifts for children with a single parent fighting cancer
For 2018, consider making a similar resolution to serve others. The rewards to the community – and to you – will be priceless.Happy New Year!
