Gilbert Make a Difference Day 2013 Grows

Gilbert, Ariz. - Since its start in February of 2012, participation in Gilbert’s Make a Difference Day has doubled.  On Saturday, October 26,  more than 1,300 people volunteered their time in our community to build relationships and make a difference. Projects included gardening, yard work, painting and rummagesales, and service locations were just as varied; local parks, non-profit organizations and elementary schools.  

The Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast

"Breakfast. It‘s scheduled for Thursday, April 5th, at 7:30 at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel. Registration is required and donations are being accepted for the homeless. It is an opportunity to assemble as a community and pray for the future of Tempe. It is also a chance to honor the work Hugh Hallman as done in the passed 8 years of his service to our city as Mayor."  Read more

Is Arizona Just Not Tracking?

Today I received an article from the Phoenix Business Journal, from my good friend John, who is very active in For Our City Chandler.  His email immediately got my attention with, “this is not good!”  As I read on I realized that new statistics were available on volunteerism and once again, Arizona was lacking in the standings at 37th out of 50 states.


My question; is Arizona really “lacking” or are we just not “tracking?” 

”Tick, tick, tick…”
