SRP VOLUNTEERS at work in the community
SRP employees, retirees, families and friends invest time, skills and resources to build stronger Arizona communities.
The SRP VOLUNTEERS program provides our employees with a meaningful experience while helping viable nonprofit organizations address critical community needs.
SRP VOLUNTEERS can assist nonprofit organizations, events and projects that meet the following guidelines:
- The activity or event must support a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
- The request must be received at least five weeks before the activity or event.
SRP employees and retirees, along with their families, who wish to volunteer may register to do so online through the SRP VOLUNTEERS program.
If you and your family members are not SRP employees but would still like to volunteer, please visit handsonphoenix.org for a comprehensive list of volunteer opportunities in the community.
Some of the organizations SRP VOLUNTEERS assisted in 2013 include:
Angel Acres provides children with a variety of disabilities fun and exercise therapy on horses and gives participants a positive, uplifting experience in a safe environment. Children are given six weeks of Saturday riding and are assisted by three volunteers. Our volunteers assisted 58 underserved children through horse therapy. The children, previously homeless, build self-esteem and confidence by rising above their fears and working to meet weekly challenges. This has a ripple effect in their homes and our community.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley helps provide better futures for 40,000 youth and teens served at 11 branches. The clubs focus on academic success and building good character and citizenship in those they serve.
With the help of thousands of volunteers and financial support from the City of Phoenix and many corporate partners, Keep Phoenix Beautiful dedicates its efforts to recycling initiatives and education, litter reduction, beautification and community improvement activities.
Paz de Cristo feeds, clothes and empowers those in need in the East Valley with the aim of helping clients reach their full potential by removing barriers so they can become more self-sufficient. The nonprofit exists to help people achieve self-reliance, pride and self-respect.
Project WET works to educate children, parents, teachers and the community about the importance of, and threats to, freshwater supplies worldwide. Its messaging focuses on ensuring sustainable supplies for all uses, including residential, agricultural, industrial and natural, and on personal responsibility to better manage resources.
