Arizona Serve of Prescott College‘s Tuscon office is holding 2 fundraisers, locally, to raise money for its AmeriCorps programming with brings volunteers from across the nation to serve the Tucson community by working in nonprofits and governmental agencies. With November being the month to give thanks, consider showing your appreciation for those working to make Tucson safer, smarter, & healthier by attending one of the following fundraisers.
Event on Saturday, November 6th: It’s Not What It SEAMS to Be – It’s Actually SEW Much Better!
Do you support the community impact our AmeriCorps Arizona Serve members make?? Do you live near/in Tucson? And do you like clothes for $1? If the answer to any of these three is a resounding “YES!”, then November 6th is the perfect day for you!
Why is it perfect for me?
Because at our Changemaker High School office in Tucson (1300 S. Belvedere Ave.), from 9am-1pm, we are hosting a second-hand clothing sale in which all items are $1. How is that possible? Great question! Our fantastic friends at Buffalo Exchange have donated 115 boxes of individual clothing items for us to sell and are allowing us to keep ALL the proceeds! So, for each $1 item bought, Arizona Serve receives that dollar!
I care for Arizona Serve, live near/in Tucson, but don’t like clothes? What sinister implications does this have for me?
Let your conscience be as clean as the clothes available! Here at Arizona Serve, we appreciate everybody’s unique characteristics, even their clothing habits. So… In this case, we call upon you to pass this along to anyone you know who wears clothes, even if it costs $1, and tell them “Arizona Serve invites ya’, and don’t forget to bring your George Washingtons…”
Event on Wednesday, November 17th: Rice Up and Help Us Make Ends Meat!
Do you support the community impact our AmeriCorps Arizona Serve members make? Do you live near/in Tucson? And do you like how Chipotle makes you feel inside? If the answer to any of these three is a resounding ‘YES!’, then November 17th also is the perfect day for you!
Now there’s a second perfect day for me?
Don’t be ridiculous! Of course, there is! Because at the 1903 E. Speedway Blvd. location, from 5-9pm, 33% of the proceeds for this event go to Arizona Serve. HOWEVER, you must show a picture of the flyer if you order inside. And for those who order online, use the code LZ8XMVZ. That said, for us to keep the proceeds, $150 of food must be purchased at the location, so please consider spending well!
I don’t like Chipotle. Can I Still Help?
At Arizona Serve, we appreciate everybody’s unique characteristics, even their taste buds. You can give back by either donating to us directly or telling everyone you know who likes Chipotle about this! Let them know to mention “Arizona Serve” and not to forget the flyer (or the code LZ8XMVZ)… and that cash, too!
The flyer for information and image can be found here.
