Elevate Phoenix strives to be involved in the community through community service projects. With the help of Cesar Chavez we were able to provide a parking lot and feeding event in November of 2011. Through this event we were able to distribute 20,000 lbs. of fruit and vegetables, 20,000 lbs. of ice cream, and 350 turkeys to the community. This provided meals for over 2,000 residents. Also, with the help of Cesar Chavez High we were able to have the girls basketball team be adopted by our own WNBA Phoenix Mercury Professional Basketball Team. We also, provide tutoring and mentors for our high school students. Statistics prove that if there is one significant adult in a young person's life that they will succeed. 90% of students involved with Elevate are productive citizens. They go to college, trade school, or join the military.
