Holiday Helpers

Valley Businesses Support Arizona Helping Hands

U.S. Egg, the Valley’s ultimate breakfast and lunch spot, teamed up with Arizona Helping Hands for its annual toy and pajama drive benefiting boys and girls in foster care. Arizona Helping Hands is the largest provider of essential needs to the 14,000-plus children in foster care in Arizona. Throughout the entire month of November 2022, all six of U.S. Egg’s Valley locations collected new toys and pajamas that were donated to Arizona Helping Hands. With the help of the local community, U.S. Egg collected 3,000 toys and pajamas for children in foster care. For more information on U.S. Egg, please visit www.useggrestaurant.com/

The Brokery held a Stuff the Sleigh toy drive for Arizona Helping Hands on December 2 at its Arcadia office. The event was designed to collect holiday gifts for teens in foster care who are often overlooked when it comes to holiday gift giving. Guests enjoyed a festive holiday market with local vendors; complimentary hot chocolate, milk, and cookies; live music and photos with Santa. The event resulted in the donation of 265 gifts and $835 in gift cards for Arizona Helping Hands.
