Did you know that the majority of Arizona does not partake in Daylight Savings Time? In fact, the only area of Arizona that does is the Navajo Nation in Northeastern Arizona! Don’t forget to “fall back” on November 4th!
 
Our Capital Campaign: We Can’t Do This Without YOU!
 
 
The staff and Board of Directors of Project MEND have unanimously agreed to move forward with a $3.2 million dollar capital campaign to build a headquarters that will combine program staff and our warehouse in one building in order to greatly enhance the experience of our customers and expand the numbers we serve.
 
For the first time in years, customers will be able to see their case worker again, tell them about their needs, fill out the needed paperwork and receive their equipment all in the same place, often in the same day, just like before.

6th Annual Toast of the Town Gala
 
 
On September 27, 2018 at The Pearl Stable, Project MEND celebrated the Gift of Mobility at the 6th Annual Toast of the Town Gala. Toast of the Town, Project MEND’s Signature Event, honors a community member or agency dedicated to improving the lives of people living with disabilities. Our 6th Annual Event honored Warm Springs Foundation, Helen Eversberg Chairman of the Board. The 6th Annual Event was the most successful gala in Project MEND history, with a 30% increase in attendance and a 20% increase in funds raised. Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us!
 
 
 
Your donations of gently used medical equipment, monetary donations and volunteer time make a HUGE difference in the lives of individuals living with disability and illness. Behind each gift, there is a real face, a real person, with a real story. Thank you for changing lives by providing mobility, independence and improved quality of life. Your donation matters. 
 
Please consider a gift to Project MEND by donating this holiday and giving season!
 
Sincerely,
 
Project MEND
