Christmas in Garfield
In partnership with over 25 churches, businesses and Garfield Elementary School, Christmas in Garfield shares the good news of Christ’s birth with over a thousand kids and several hundred parents in the Garfield neighborhood. Providing a new gift for each child, bibles, entertainment, a car club, bounce houses and a giant human snow globe, this Christmas event is the largest organized event in the neighborhood each year. Last year over 200 volunteers came from 20 different churches from around the valley to show what Christmas was all about, Christ’s endless love for each of them!
Easter in garfield
Think Pokemon GO mixed with a lot of pastels and plastic eggs. This neighborhood collaboration modernizes the classic Easter egg hunt by taking the hunt on the GO by turning an entire neighborhood into a hunt for candy. Tens of thousands of eggs will be hidden at multiple locations at various Garfield landmarks in Downtown Phoenix.
