Mission Statement

The Big Hearts with Helping Hands of Arizona Organization is a IRS registered 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit organization.

If your interested in volunteering to make handcrafted toys for the less fortunate children, you can e-mail us at: BigHeartsOfAZOrg@gmail.com or at BigHeartsOfAZOrgJOHN@gmail.com or at CESwazey@msn.com

You can also find us by typing in the organization name. All handcrafted items can be mailed to us. Many children have enjoyed receiving the beautiful handcrafted items donated from out of state and out of country. These past volunteers made such beautiful items. The children have enjoyed their handcrafted holiday gifts.

Volunteers are needed, crocheters, knitters, plastic canvas, sewers, beaders and loom knitters to help us make the holiday gifts. We make handcrafted toys, baby items, afghans and much more. All of the items we make are given to the less fortuante children as December holiday gifts, birthday gifts for their friends and for surprise good deed gifts. We handcraft items all year long for various holidays. For Easter we make baskets and Bunnies and put Easter Baskets together. WIn the past, we had provided 150 colored eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt. We also have public picnics to feed the hungry. We do this several times a year. Our last occassions were on Memorial Weekend and Independance Day. We had supplied all of the food and fed who ever showed up to eat, at no charge. We like to promote and provide the benefits of handcrafted gifts, new and used donated items, public BBQ events to benefit the community, disaster relief, older RV's to provide shelter and running vehicles for people to get the children to the doctors appointments. The vehicle is also used to transport chidlren to special, privte and out of district schools. Our "City of Challenges" goal needs a lot of support, including vendors to rent space at our year round crafting fair events.

Volunteers are needed for our fundraisers, helping to make the handcrafted toys by crocheting, knitting, loom knitting and/or sewing. We are also listed under Disaster Relief, food boxes, disability rights advocates, along with many other various types of services to benefit the communities needs. Office and Grant writer assistance volunteers are greatly needed! We greatly appreciate all of the volunteer assitance our community can help us with. Volunteers, who are willing to help us pick up donated items around town, is greatly needed and appreciated!

Help with fundraising is greatly needed! We have also provided complete Thanksgiving Dinner food boxes and complete December Holiday Dinner food boxes, when available. Food and other Donations are greatly appreciated.

Would you recommend Big Hearts with Helping Hands of Arizona Organization?

by Jazmin V. (April 9, 2010)
The reason why i will recommend this organization to a friend or colleague is that i think its a great opportunity to help our community as much as we can.
by Meredith T. from Tucson, AZ (Administrator for this Organization) (November 8, 2013)
Made a lot of handcrafted toys for the less fortunate children to receive. Letting the children go without a holiday gift can be heart breaking. I fear to think about the verbal harrassments many less fortunate children might receive at school, if other students knew they did not receive any holiday gifts due to a families economic hardship. After the holidays can be a tough time for children to hold positive conversations with their peers. These children will have receivevd a handcrafted gift that is very unique, made with love and can not be bought at the stores. http://www.bigheartswithhelpinghands.org
