The Verrado Assembly facilitates a range of opportunities for residents to give back, last year spending over 20,000 hours serving at local soup kitchens, donating to West Valley clothing drives, organizing fundraisers, providing meals to neighbors in need, and much more.
Giving Tree – A special philanthropic project, the Giving Tree celebrates Verrado’s extraordinary commitment to charitable endeavors. Part of the Verrado Leadership™ program, the Giving Tree is a fundraising and philanthropic focal point supporting Verrado causes, including monthly service trips to the Phoenix Rescue Mission, the annual Feed My Starving Children MobilePack, and the Joy of Giving holiday gift drive.
Created through the Verrado Assembly, Verrado Leadership™ (VL) works with Arizona State University to enhance the quality of life for Verrado residents and cultivate a community of leadership. Each neighborhood is represented by a Neighborhood Captain who is committed to four goals:
1) Community outreach through neighbor-to-neighbor engagement
2) Being a neighborhood organizer for community events and activities
3) Being an ambassador for the community
4) Being a steward of charitable endeavors
The VL program’s goal is to enhance the community for years to come, creating a legacy that touches the hearts and lives of program participants.
There is no shortage of great places to live, but it’s Verrado’s residents that make it a caring community and a welcoming place to call home. See for yourself with a visit, or contact us for more information about activities in Verrado today!
