It is my pleasure to bring to all the members a Charity Auction to benefit the Joshua Tree Feeding Program.
100% of the proceeds are given to this charity.
Joshua Tree Feeding Program
The goal of Joshua Tree Feeding Program is to provide nourishment to low-income HIV+ residents of Maricopa County. They provide balanced meals from their pantry as well as medical and community resources to encourage self-sustainability of their clients in a social, supportive and welcoming environment where privacy, cultural, spiritual and religious values are respected.
Their expanded services also give assistance to their client's pets, and provide food and supplies to keep the pets in low income homes to maintain the comfort and support they provide to those with HIV/AIDS.
In June of 2021 Joshua Tree Feeding Program opened up for the Trans and Gender Expansive Community. This way no one goes home hungry.
