Mark your calendar: Tempe Cares will be Saturday, March 5th

Tempe Cares 2016 is fast approaching!  Mark your calendars and prepare to lend your volunteer time and talents to “giving back” to our wonderful City!

Project Focus – Community garden at Clark Park helping build raised ADA beds, ground beds, grape vine and trellis, art work, and much more. We are also going back to Childsplay and assisting them in painting, orginizing, cleaning and landscaping.

Each year, Tempe Cares focuses on a different need in the community, bringing together resources and volunteers to help others in the community and improve quality of life for everyone in Tempe.

Tempe Cares, founded in 1991, was the inspiration of former Tempe City Councilwoman Carol E. Smith who wanted to see the community come together to help the greater good.

  • The mission of Tempe Cares is to organize citizen volunteers to reduce blight and improve the appearance of Tempe’s neighborhoods and community spaces.
  • Tempe Cares has grown annually to include several hundred individuals, groups and businesses. Each year these volunteers come together to invest their combined resources of skilled and unskilled physical labor, tools and building materials to help improve quality of life in Tempe.
  • Tempe Cares owes its success to the many individuals who come out on the day of the event and dedicate their time, toil, and heart to help their community. Our volunteers include hundreds of Tempe Leadership alumni as well as representatives from non-profit organizations, businesses, schools, service clubs, religious organizations and neighborhoods – people just like you!
  • Of increasing importance is the participation of construction contractors who provide much-needed skilled craftsmanship, such as carpentry, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, tree trimming and landscaping. We are always looking for local contractors to get involved with Tempe Cares.
