Phoenix Day

Phoenix, AZ 85004

Phoenix Day serves more than 3,500 children, families and community members annually through high-quality early education and health services. The majority of clients are low-income area residents, often single mothers, struggling to make ends meet. Founded in 1915 by the Junior Guild of Trinity Cathedral, Phoenix Day offered an innovative service for the time-childcare for World War I wives entering the workforce. Since then it has grown into one of Arizona’s most innovative and progressive child learning centers. Their programs are open to children age 6 weeks to 5 years. They are licensed for 168 children.

They serve breakfast, lunch and two snacks each day. For more than 15 years Waste NOT has provided food that is used for special events, as well as reserving some of the donated food to send home with the families to help provide for siblings. They are a stable resource for the surrounding community and partnering with Waste NOT helps them better meet the challenges of daily living for the families they serve.
