Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix has been a member of the Cities of Service coalition since 2009. Since 2012, Mayor Greg Stanton has continued to strengthen Phoenix’s commitment to service and to leverage resident volunteers to move the needle on key mayoral priorities. Thanks to his leadership, volunteers have made an impact in health and environmental sustainability. By partnering with HandsOn Greater Phoenix and other community organizations, the city has brought fresh produce to low-income housing communities and decreased the city’s carbon footprint.

Health

Let's Grow

Through Let’s Grow, Phoenix created and maintained community gardens at three housing centers for low-income residents. Working in partnership with a number of local partners, Phoenix engaged volunteers, including residents of the housing centers, to harvest 1,450 pounds of fresh produce, which was then provided to 210 individuals and families living in the centers. Volunteers have also led educational gardening and cooking and nutrition classes for residents.

"As Mayor, I am committed to fostering a city culture in which civic engagement and volunteerism is in our DNA."
