From our heart
We’re not just in Phoenix; we are Phoenix…and we believe in giving back to Phoenix.
The Perry Monge team volunteers its time to raise funds and awareness for a number of charitable causes throughout the year, both local and regional.
The following are some of the organizations we work with:
Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona
We got involved with this organization when we found out that some of our long-term guests have a son that suffers from epilepsy. Alan and Karen asked if we could help make a difference, and we were happy to help. Every year since we’ve donated products and services to their fundraising event as raffle prizes.
Ronald McDonald House
This organization is very close to Perry’s heart.
Several years ago, Perry’s 4 month old nephew passed away from heart complications at Tucson Medical Center. Ronald McDonald House was there for Perry’s family when they needed it the most, as a home base and as a source of comfort during the most trying time of their lives. He is forever grateful and takes special care to help raise funds and awareness so that other families might have the same support his had when they need it the most.
Child Crisis Nursery
Child Crisis Arizona operates an Emergency Children’s Shelter facility for children up to age 10 who are affected by abuse, neglect, abandonment, or other forms of maltreatment, when a family relative or licensed foster care family is not available. We sold Perr Bears to raise money for back to school back packs filled with school supplies, shoes, socks, underwear and snacks.
We run holiday salon promotions to benefit the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry and St. Mary’s Food Bank, where salon guests bring non-perishable items to feed homeless and feed families during the holiday season,
We also participate in the Souper Bowl of Caring, raising money and collecting food for those without food, specifically children, during Super Bowl season. We have nachos, hot dogs and chips for salon guests. They donate $5.00 -$10.00, they get to pick a grab worth anywhere from $5.00 to $35.00
Western Resource Advocates
As part of our Aveda Earth month campaign, we raise funds for clean water, and the funds raised all stay in Arizona to protect the Colorado River, which supplies water to over 40 million people.
Fresh Start Women’s Foundation
This organization supports women that are getting back into the workforce. We volunteer haircuts and makeup to help build their self-confidence to conquer the next challenging step in their life.
CPLC Elderly Services at Casa de Primavera
We provide food, haircuts, manicures to residents of Primavera, a subsidized elder housing apartment community for those living with a reduced income. The most rewarding part is simply visiting with residents and listening to their stories.
12 News Turkey Tuesday
Channel 12, our local NBC affiliate, sponsors Turkey Tuesday the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. They have competing TV personalities at two supermarkets to see who raises the most money and food. We collect food and donations to help them feed as many families as possible.
Clients’ donations are used to shop for gifs for families in need through the Salvation Army’s Christmas Angel program.
