Giving and Leading: City of Phoenix Leadership Grant

Phoenix was selected as one of three cities (along with Detroit and Miami) to receive a Cities of Service grant to expand volunteering efforts in Phoenix. Cities of Service was founded by New York Mayor Bloomberg in 2009 to support mayors across the country who are committed to engaging volunteers as a solution to the most pressing challenges in our cities – such as food insecurity, homelessness, literacy, opportunity youth, etc. There are several big volunteer projects coming up in October and November.
