Be cool, Charity Chicks! Be cool.

It’s starting to get hot outside but you can still be cool by making generous donations for homebound seniors.

The Beat the Heat program serves low-income, housebound, isolated seniors in Scottsdale. This program serves a couple functions: it provides summer relief to many seniors in need and it also gives city social workers delivering these packages a chance to assess growing needs and provide additional services to our seniors.

There are often more needs than donations and so that’s where we come in! We will be collecting donations at the Inner Circle Cafe through May 27. Inner Circle Cafe, 2515 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85257
