The Harvest Compassion Center (HCC) is pleased to announce it has received a $30,000 grant from Thunderbirds Charities. These funds will support the mission of the Harvest Compassion Center West Phoenix to provide free food, clothing, hygiene, and baby items to local families who live in the Valley.
In partnership with Thunderbirds Charities, Harvest Compassion Center West Phoenix welcomes anyone living in Arizona to visit once every 30 days to receive a free shopping trip in their one-stop shops. Families receive recyclable grocery bags, shopping carts and personal shoppers as they are welcome to choose their needed and desired grocery and clothing items. HCC locations provide choice and dignity as well as, fun kids play-corners for families to enjoy while shopping in what they call “Food Banking Reimagined.” HCC, serving the Valley for the past 11 years, currently has three locations in West Phoenix, North Phoenix and Maryvale and has served over 60,000 families! HCC first opened its’ doors to the public in memory of one 23-year-old brother and son, Mitch Swaback. Through one family’s loss, the desire and mission to serve the underserved in Phoenix was born. If the HCC can continue showing guests love through service, our hope is our guests will return this same kindness to others.
“With amazing partners like Thunderbirds Charities, we will continue to feed, clothe and most importantly, love, local families and kids. It has been an honor to have our doors remain fully open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, a time when local needs more than tripled overnight! What a privilege it continues to be to expand HCCs outreach and build stronger partnerships with those like Thunderbirds Charities, who continue be a stronghold throughout Arizona. Thank you, Thunderbirds Charities, for your ongoing support!” commented Nicolee Thompson, HCC CEO and Executive Director.
