The HSMAI Community Outreach Committee plans and coordinates community service/volunteer projects throughout the year and serves as the liaison with HSMAI's "Charity of the Year" projects.

How will you make a difference in 2017? The Community Outreach Committee is working on fun and impactful events for 2017. Our goal is to offer HSMAI members the opportunity to positively contribute to the community while having fun without a year long commitment. We welcome you to join us for one or all of our events.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Founded in Scottsdale, AZ in 2013, Neighbors Helping Neighbors is an organization whose members aspire to respond to various opportunities that allow their leaders to show commitment to those in need in our local communities. They are driven by the belief that we have a responsibility to our neighbors to aid them with hands-on efforts and financial resources. They hope to assist, contribute and enrich the lives of the people they touch who may find themselves in a position where they require a supportive and compassionate helping hand. Through strategic partnerships and pooling the resources of its members, NHN is dedicated to giving the helping hand that many of our neighbors need but unfortunately can't find elsewhere. NHN has been recognized for their success with the "Shop with a Cop" program that assists at risk, underprivileged children over the holiday season. Their dedication and participation to our veterans and collaboration with AZ Honor Flight has assisted many military veterans and their families over the last few years.

Volunteer Opportunity for our Charity of the Year - Neighbors Helping Neighbors
At Camp Sunrise, Payson, Arizona

What to wear - comfortable ready to work clothes, this is a fixer upper type activity so be ready to work in closed toed shoes and comfy clothes that you donít mind getting dirty. This is in Payson so I would be prepared with some layers should the weather swing to the cooler side.
What to bring Ė If you have handy man tools, bring them, just be prepared to keep track of your things should you do so. Otherwise no need to bring anything with you, the supplies will either be on hand or we may need to make a few trips to the store to gather needed supplies based on the work we are presented with for the day.

Directions: MAP
What to expect - working along side Neighbors Helping Neighbors - tasks will range from painting, cleaning to minor plumbing and everything in between.

If you can join the group - Please email Stephanie Liegeois or call 480-208-9950.

Families are welcome, HOWEVER the bulk of the work is painting the medical lodge and cleaning (application of Murphy's Oil Soap to what is essentially a log cabin) so as long as they can assist with this type of work, then the answer is yes to children attending!
