Thunderbirds Charities recently awarded $20,000 to East Valley Adult Resources (EVAR). This generous award will be used to support the Assistance for Independent Living Volunteer Services Program. Through this program, volunteers are matched with homebound seniors in the East Valley who benefit from assistance with essential daily activities such as: assisted transportation to medical appointments, prescription pick-up, help with grocery shopping, and friendly visiting and phone calls. “We are very grateful to Thunderbirds Charities for their support,” said Deborah Schaus, CEO of EVAR. “The program makes the difference in enabling our homebound neighbors to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible, and strengthens our community along the way.”
“East Valley Adult Resources has such a positive impact on so many homebound seniors in our East Valley community and we excited to support such a great mission,” said Chance Cozby, President of Thunderbirds Charities.
