Feature Segment on Channel 10 News with Cory McCloskey!
We had an exciting visit today from Channel 10 News & Cory McClosky featuring our #Savethepuppiespaws campaign! We discussed our goal to raise money for a shade canopy in our dog run area. They filmed a live segment this morning and featured Family Promise and our pet area.
Our very own Morgan Taylor starred in the interview. Everyone had tons of fun and Cory is truly a lovely person. He was warm and friendly with all the families and he even stuck around to hangout with the families and take pictures with them after the cameras stopped rolling. The families were absolutely thrilled. We will be sharing those photos on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram today, so be sure to check those out.
But most importantly! Please share the link below on your Facebook pages, and email it to friends and family. This is how we can really get some legs under this fundraiser, but even more importantly sharing the good news and attention pays big dividends for us with foundations and donors long term! It also is a great excuse to steward our friends. Thank you!
Family Promise has been blessed with the opportunity to receive a $1,000 matching grant! This means that in order to receive the grant we must match their $1,000. We will use this money to put the finishing touches on our Client Store. If you would like to donate please contact us at https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/FamilyPromise-GreaterPhoenix/OnlineDonation.html. We appreciate your help!
Our much-anticipated Mahalo Mondays event at Hula’s Modern Tiki Scottsdale is beginning soon! Starting Tuesday July 8th and continuing every following Monday this July, Hula’s Modern Tiki Scottsdale has generously offered to donate 10% of their day’s profits to Family Promise.
We will use this charitable donation to help reach our $6,000 goal in our #savethepuppiespaws campaign. PetSmart generously donated both a Dog and Cat Sanctuary that now enables us to accept families and their pets. Unfortunately, in the brutal Arizona summers, the pets’ Astroturf play area gets scorching hot and burns their paws! We are trying to raise money to build a canopy shade over their play area so they can continue to enjoy the outdoors, even in the summer.

You can help us reach our goal while also getting a delicious meal! Hula’s Modern Tiki has an impressive menu that would be good for any meeting, event, lunch, or dinner. Bring your coworkers, friends, and family to Hula’s Modern Tiki Scottsdale Tuesday, July 8th and every following Monday this July for a delicious meal and to help us help our furry friends!

The Summer Heat is upon us!!
Family Promise is the only emergency homeless shelter that accepts pets with the families.
We have a dog run area for the dogs to run, play, and do their doggie business along with an area for the families to sit outside and enjoy their furry family members. Part of the dog run is astroturf . The astroturf becomes unbearably hot in the summer and there is no shade for the pups and their families to sit outside and be together.
We have started a crowd fundraising campaign to raise the $5,000 to pay for a very nice commercial grade canopy for the area. Our goal is to not go through another summer with toasty puppy paws. We want to create a comfortable area for our dog guests and their families.
You can donate directly to Family Promise on this website. Please share this with your family and friends! It is a great way to honor a favorite pet.
