8123 Impact Events Happening At 8123 Fest

Two years ago, we launched 8123 Impact - a charity initiative to encourage the 8123 Family to donate their times and talents locally by volunteering in their communities. Since then, we’ve arranged numerous volunteer projects during The Maine’s tours and hundreds of you guys have gotten involved!

Now, we’re going back to the place that started it all, the community of Phoenix, Arizona where we launched Impact. In celebration of 8123 Fest this week, we have arranged some fun volunteer projects in The Maine’s community - we hope you will get involved!

Read on for the details of the projects, more info about the non-profits, as well as the dates/times/locations of each event. Click on the link to sign up for one while you’re in town!

Southwest Human Development -> ***Friday January 18th - 12pm - 3:30pm***

Southwest Human Development strengthens the foundation Arizona's children need for a great start in life. This is AZ's largest nonprofit dedicated to early childhood development and they provide crucial support and programs to thousands of children and their families annually.

Volunteers will be selling 50/50 raffle tickets to fundraise to support their programs including their literacy programs (supplying 100,000 books yearly) and Child Development Center (helps families with children who have developmental disabilities). Volunteers will work in teams of two with a tablet and a printer to sell tickets at a local Expo. Volunteers need to be outgoing and capable of walking around for the duration of the shift.

Girls Behind The Rock Show -> ***Saturday January 19th - 9:30am***

This incredible organization will be on site at the festival - definitely head on over to their table to chat with them about the important work they do. We are collaborating with GBTRS to send a group to join in the Women's March happening in Phoenix the same day as the festival. Because of the slight overlap, we will be meeting at 9:30am to join the 10am march, and you can stay for as long or as little as you like before heading over to Fest. Please sign up below if interested in joining us - and we'll send you an email with more info!
