HopeFest 2015 helps thousands of Valley residents in need
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -
Thousands of families and people in need will receive free medical, dental, vision, food, clothing and more at a giant charity outreach this Saturday.
HopeFest 2015 will offer medical care, hygiene services, clothing, food and more to uninsured, underinsured and underserved people in need from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix.
HopeFest is an initiative by CityServe Arizona. The event unites hundreds of Valley agencies, organizations, and individuals to provide services and donations to communities in need. More than 2,000 residents will volunteer at the event.
"We started CityServe to find ways that we could serve better together," Billy Thrall of CityServe AZ said. "So how could we get all the different agencies and entities that want to care for people in one place, and that's how we created HopeFest Phoenix. It's a day to represent what CityServe is about."
Last year, HopeFest gave medical services to 5,000 people in need, distributed 50,000 items of clothing and personal care items, connected more than 2,000 residents to health services, and much, much more.
