I am super proud, humbled, excited and anxious to say that I am one of the new board members at the Tempe Community Action Agency.
I have a great deal of respect for the work that the TCAA does, and I am thrilled with this opportunity to assist them in serving the needy in our community.
The TCAA provides education, stability, and advocacy to working poor families, children, seniors and the homeless. We help those who are struggling to obtain adequate food and shelter, as well as seniors and disabled adults working to attain their highest level of independence. Acting with financial support from the community we serve, TCAA operates a food pantry, three senior centers, aging programs, the Tempe Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP), pre- and post-natal services, two community gardens, and other projects and programs that serve our most vulnerable residents.
Lori and I have been involved with various parts of the Tempe Community Action Agency for several years. I think our first introduction was via I-HELP. As a family, we served meals to homeless people at our church. We have participated in the annual I-HELP walk for the homeless and some of their other community events. Please know that I will be much more vocal in my desire to have you join us at the next walk for the homeless! 🙂
One of the committees I currently serve on at the TCAA is the planning committee for the annual Vicinity: Internationally Tempe Charity Gala. SO, please mark your calendar for October 21st, 2016 as you’ll also be asked to join us at this amazing event!
This position on their board of directors is a wonderful opportunity for me to be more involved with some awesome things in our community and to work with some amazing people to help make our world a better place. Of course, I would love to let you know about some really cool ways you can help, too!
The TCAA is here “to improve the quality of life for the underserved in our community.” How cool is that?!?!
I sincerely hope you will join me in supporting this special organization!
