Philanthropy knows no season at Pine Canyon. Despite the wintery weather, Pine Canyon Cares, our community’s philanthropic program, has been busy supporting local causes with outreach efforts that have required a little sweat equity.
Because there’s no better way to empathize with the needs of the community than to put yourself at the doorstep of those who need a helping hand. And over the past two months, we’ve done just that.
In late January, volunteers with Pine Canyon Cares reunited with High Country Humane, an organization that used to be known as Paw Placement of Northern Arizona and one that Pine Canyon members supported with a fundraiser last summer. That fundraiser helped the organization secure a facility for its shelter, and our volunteers spent a few hours in January assisting with needs in the new building, helping with the kennels and offering support in the donation center.
In February, Pine Canyon volunteers shifted their focus to domestic violence survivors in the Flagstaff area by giving time at Sharon’s Attic Thrift Store. The store supports women and children who have survived domestic violence by offering financial support to help with issues related to economic independence, safety, health, and self-sufficiency. To support that mission, Pine Canyon volunteers spent a few hours sorting merchandise and donations.
And there’s more to come.
This month, Pine Canyon Cares is organizing a trash clean-up event around Pine Canyon. Throughout the rest of the year, Pine Canyon Cares will continue to look for outreach opportunities throughout the Flagstaff area, and as is becoming a tradition, it will spearhead a community-wide philanthropy effort as part of Pine Canyon’s annual Fourth of July festivities.
