Cause Specific Events Benefiting Tempe Community Action Agency
TCAA hosts signature annual fundraising events to benefit individuals and families striving to overcome poverty and homelessness and live independently in their community of choice: with your support, we proudly serve over 22,000 persons each year.
VICINITY Tempe is our signature fundraising event held in October each year. A variety of Holiday Giving events are held in December for the families and single adult/senior participants of our programs, including the Adopt a Family program and senior holiday meals. Our annual Tempe Race to Alleviate Homelessness, benefiting the I-HELP Shelter Program, is held in the Spring. The increasingly popular Tempe Empty Bowls event takes place in February each year to benefit hunger relief programs offered by TCAA and our partner, United Food Bank.
Tempe Race to Alleviate Homelessness
The Tempe Race to Alleviate Homelessness supports the mission of Tempe Community Action Agency's I-HELP Shelter Program; to assist men and women to overcome homelessness and improve their level of self-reliance. I-HELP is Tempe's only homeless shelter program and serves up to 40 men and women per night with involvement from a vast network of community and faith-based partners.
