Make a Difference Day

Saturday October 26th, 2019

The 11th Annual Fountain Hills Make a Difference Day will bring together volunteers from the faith community, clubs and organizations, and town volunteers with a common mission to contribute where needs exist within our town. Work sites may include raking and cleaning up yards, cleaning up and organizing garages, building wheelchair ramps for elderly home-bound residents, or even deep cleaning where owners cannot keep up with those duties.

Let’s show our neighbors that Fountain Hills is the “Small Town with a Big Heart!” Please register to volunteer today at the Town of Fountain Hills website!

If you know a resident who, due to health, financial, lack of family or transportation, may need a hand with landscaping, painting, repairs, cleaning, building a wheel chair ramp, installing grab bars, hauling debris and other minor projects – contact the Town of Fountain Hills Volunteer Coordinator Heather Ware at 480-816-5108.
