Caring Corps Celebrates Fifteen Years


Foothills Caring Corps has served elderly neighbors throughout Carefree, Cave Creek, North Scottsdale and North Phoenix for 15 years. The Caring Corps volunteers offer grocery shopping assistance, mobile meals, pet visiting, computer assistance, van service and much more. In 2013-14, the organization’s 575 volunteers donated more than 42,000 hours to assist 740 residents within Maricopa County. Nearly 7,000 mobile meals were delivered and over 7,300 van trips and medical transports made.

In February, the local nonprofit looks forward to celebrating its 15 year milestone with the community. Executive director Debbra Determan, who has overseen the Caring Corps since 2006, invites the community to learn more about its history, achievements, expansive programs and continued services as it hosts the “Save A Place in Your Heart” anniversary event. The free event includes light refreshments and live music Sunday, February 15, from 12-4pm.

The event will be educational as well as celebratory. The open house will feature outdoor booths, manned by current volunteers, highlighting the Caring Corps’ varied services and programs that have developed over the years. Affinity, a 10-piece band, will perform live on stage at the Carefree Amphitheater from 1-3pm.

Foothills Caring Corps Headquarters is located at 7275 East Easy Street, Carefree. For more information, call 480.488.1105 or visit
