FTWAV About Us 1

Our Impact & Focus

We are an action-oriented organization that gets things done with urgency. Once a cause or need is brought to our attention, it is our goal to provide immediate results while keeping all proceeds in Arizona and dedicated to the cause.

Children

Children and teens need not be perpetual victims. Whether it’s helping homeless children with education, providing food bags, or supplying clothes, we support the programs that give kids the opportunity to rise above their life conditions and grow into promising futures.

  • AZ Cancer Foundation for Children
  • Cardons Childrens Hospital (Poke prizes)
  • Arizona Helping Hands
  • Fall Food Drive (Phoenix S.D) Over 2000 food bags compiled & donated during fall break, 2015).
  • Backpack drive — school supplies

Families

Families under duress are oftentimes put in unlivable situations and in need of urgent support. By providing safety, shelter, and resources, those experiencing threatening, violent, or otherwise harmful situations can get the immediate help they need.

  • New Life Center (underwear drive, bed sheet drive, and more)
  • First Things First (airfare to Disney World)

Animals

Whether a bear, bobcat or coyote, wild animals alike deserve to be treated with kindness and to live happy, healthy lives.

  • SW Wildlife (new rehabilitation enclosures, Toro off-road vehicle, supplies and more)
  • Phoenix Fire Department: Fido bags (animal rescue bags)
  • 100 Club — Dog training for the Sexual Crime Division

Community

  • Phoenix Fire Dept: drowning prevention/pool fences
  • Teacher Appreciation Week (Phoenix School District)
  • Best Buddies
