This Christmas time, we will be hosting our third clothing event. These past two years, we have been working with Clothe a Child Project, but they have decided to try to become their own 501c3 charity, so we wish them nothing but the best. So with that said we will be doing our own event called Campbell's Clothing for Kids. Where we will be taking 85 in need children shopping, so they can pick out brand new clothes, shoes, socks and underwear and even a special toy. This event took place on November 23 at the Walmart on Elliot and Priest.
This is our second event of this Holiday Season. On December 14th, we took an additional 51 in need children and families shopping for all new clothes and a toy. In total we helped approximately 136 kids this holiday season. But we definitely could not have done without the help of our friends and family, volunteers and donors. So thank you so very much, you all mean the world to us, and we are so excited and ready for 2020.
This coming March and April, Campbell's Crew Cares is partnering with many business and charities all over Arizona, in order to raise money and collect underwear for St Vincents De Paul. Underwear is a very important need in the St Vincents De Paul Shelter. Many of the people from the shelter can wear donated clothes, but nobody should have to wear used underwear. That is why we need your help. We will be collecting all throughout March and April. So please join help us and Drop your Drawers for CCC. For our Complete Amazon wishlist, click the button below. Thank you!
Campbell's Crew Cares was founded on, October of 2017, after my son Campbell's Make a Wish. His wish was to go to Wrigley Field in Chicago, to go see his best friend Kyle play baseball. On the flight home, that is when he asked to create a charity, so he could help people in need after everyone had helped him. And on October 3rd, his wish became a reality as we became our very own 501c3 charity. In December of 2017, that is when we partnered with Clothe a Child Project to take 150 in need children shopping for new clothes. It was an incredible event. In the next months, we planned and hosted our first fundraising event. It was called Bourbon 101, we raised around 10,000 dollars. In October, Campbell's Crew Cares partnered with Noah's Kindness Project to donate a very special piece of medical equipment to Banner Desert Hospital. The device is called a CuddleCot, it is used to give families more time to say goodbye to their precious angel babies. The CuddleCot was donated in memory of Noah James Haskovec. Once again in December, with the help of Clothe a Child we took another 150 in need children shopping for clothes, shoes and even a toy. In February, we hosted our second fundraising event, called Beer U: A Liquid Education. We Raised approximately $26,000 that night. We are now planning a brand new event that will take place on August 1st, where we will be donating backpacks to an entire in need school. We will also be working with Noah's Kindness Project by donating another CuddleCot to a local hospital. Also part of Noah's Kindness Project, we will be hosting a socks, underwear and food drive to donate to St Vincents De Paul. Campbell's Crew Cares has also partnered with Phoenix Silent Witness to create and pass out 1000 food bags to people on the streets. And this Christmas, we will once again be doing our Christmas Clothing event. These past 2 years we have been working with Clothe a Child Project, but they have decided to go and try to get their very own 501c3 Charity, so as we wish them well, we will be hosting our own event where we will still take in need children shopping for clothes and a toy. 2019 was an incredible year, we finished off the year by taking 140 in need children shopping for all new clothes and a toy. This of course could not have been done without the help of our generous donors and our incredible volunteers who were at the Walmart by 6 am. We are all so excited for 2020, we have some big, big plans. So thank you all for your support, none of this would have been possible without the support of all the people like you!!!!
Big things are happening in the next few months with Campbell's Crew Cares! Some amazing projects and a lot of Hope being shared with those whom could really use it! From backpacks to food bags! Thank you for helping us provide hope to those in need.
