The time that you spend with your family, friends, and chosen loved ones is very special. Here at Bookmans Phoenix, we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have the support of you. Our community has come together to help us help others during this time of giving. Recently, because of your support, we were able to make considerable donations to our friends at VOICES for Casa Children and the Arizona Humane Society!

From their website, “Voices for CASA Children seeks to give a Voice to these children through a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer.” Their very special team of caring individuals look out for the child’s best interest by giving them a voice when they need it most. For the last month, Bookmans Phoenix has been collecting new books, toys, and gift cards for their annual holiday tree toy drive. All toys collected will go directly into the arms of youth local to Maricopa County ages birth-18 years of age. This is by way of their CASA volunteer or through their group home coordinated by VOICES. Due to your generosity, we’ve extended the donation period to Tuesday, December 11th!

Then on Friday, December 7th, we stopped by the 95.1 The Oasis Phoenix studios to present a check for $1,500 to the Arizona Humane Society. They were hosting a Give-A-Thon at the studio with live feeds of adoptable puppies! You better believe that I was snuggling every puppy and kitten I could get my paws on!

Join Bookmans Phoenix, The Oasis Phoenix, and the Arizona Humane Society on Saturday, December 15th from 1 PM to 3 PM for some Pawliday Photos with Santa Paws! Pet owners who attend can make a $5 donation and receive a photo with Santa and their furry friends with our photo booth. Theses pics can be sent digitally to text, email or Instagram. We’re crossing our fingers that AHS will have adoptable pets with them!

Just remember every little bit counts. Whether you donate time, food, clothing, or money, you are making a difference. On behalf of non-profit partners, thank you. You are the coolest and we are lucky to have friends like you!
