RILLITO NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT !

  • Rillito.  This small impoverished community is Just a few blocks away from all the new development in Marana, AZ.  Most of the residents are elderly or single parents with few resources. 

    We are planning a community service day in Rillito on Saturday, November 9th, 2013.  From 7 am to 5 pm.

    Food will be provided!

    We have some resources we are giving to this group of people, and we are wondering if you would like to help?   We recently upgraded two of our housing facilities that serve the disadvantaged, which resulted in a surplus of used appliances (including swamp coolers), windows and doors.  These supplies are desperately needed in the homes in Rillito.  We are planning a work day here in the community to install as many windows, doors and appliances as we can. 

    We are Portable Practical Educational Preparation (PPEP) and affiliate PPEP Microbusiness and Housing Development Corporation.  We have served the disadvantaged in southern Arizona for the past 46 years.  We would love to have your assistance in this day of service to the Rillito community!

    We can use help with funding for t-shirts and basic safety equipment, food and drinks for the workers who will offer their time to this endeavor, the time and effort of those who know carpentry, painting, or are interested in doing simple site cleanup.  We can use additional used appliances that work, carpentry, plumbing, electrical and cleaning supplies.

    I-10 North to Tangerine exit

    South on N Casa Grande Hwy
