Phoenix Children’s Project (PCP) helps impoverished children living in the metro Phoenix, Arizona area.
We are passionate about what we do. We will "give them fish" a few times, but then "we teach them how to fish." We help the underprivileged help themselves.
In January of 2004, Phoenix Children’s Project was formed as a 501c3 charitable, tax exempt, non-profit organization.
We are funded solely by private individuals and local businesses. We receive no government funding.
PCP is run solely by volunteers therefore there are no paid staff and all administrative costs, which are minimal, are covered by separate grants, donations or volunteers. PCP is truly grass roots, charitable organization.
Thanks to the support and tremendous help of the Phoenix community and some local businesses, just some our accomplishments to date are:
We delivered over Christmas presents bringing our total to over 29,020 gifts and 435 holiday dinners to the children and their families,
We’ve provided new beds and bedding to over 75 children who otherwise would be sleeping on the floor or on an old couch,
Each winter we give children warm coats, hat and gloves,
New school uniforms, shoes, socks, underwear and supplies for 800 children,
Over 40 children have gone to summer camp in northern Arizona. When some got older, they became Teen Summer Camp Counselors.
We arranged for many kids to have swim lessons and water safety classes through The City of Phoenix.
