Great Wolf Lodge donates hundreds of linens to Family Promise

Family Promise of Greater Phoenix, a nonprofit organization that rescues primarily first-time homeless families and their pets and helps them return to independence, received a donation of hundreds of linens from Great Wolf Lodge Arizona.

This effort is part of Great Wolf Lodge’s companywide Paw Pledge initiative, which focuses on the health and safety of its guests and pack, commitment to the community, and providing travel flexibility to families.

Located within the Salt River Pima, Maricopa Indian Community’s Talking Stick Entertainment District, Great Wolf Lodge Arizona was the planned site of Family Promise’s annual fundraising event, previously scheduled to be held in early April. However, with the spread of coronavirus, the event was postponed to October. Despite the postponement, Great Wolf Lodge wanted to show its support to Family Promise by donating hundreds of linens for the families it is serving. The donation included bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, bathmats, sheets and pillowcases.

Family Promise is sheltering more than a dozen families at its day center in South Scottsdale. Before the coronavirus pandemic, Family Promise relied on its network of volunteer churches and synagogues to shelter and feed the families it serves while Family Promise assisted these families on their journey back to self-sufficiency. Family Promise has had to abandon its community-based model to protect its volunteers and families from the potential spread of the virus.

Family Promise is requesting monetary donations to support its day-to-day operations of sheltering its families at its day center. Donations can be made at FamilyPromiseAZ.org.
