As an organization, Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research’s (SSBTR) mission is to provide education and leadership development to our youth, furnish a platform for them to play a principal role in effecting positive changes in their communities, promote awareness of how common brain tumors are as the leading cause of cancer deaths among their peers and act as outreach to support affected individuals and their families.
The centerpiece of this student run non-profit is its annual cure-a-thon in Scottsdale, AZ, which serves as a vehicle towards raising support for brain tumor research through soliciting donations and enhancing community and corporate involvement.
Veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound while serving in the military on or after September 11, 2001. You are our focus. You are our mission.
Every warrior has unique challenges and goals. That’s why we provide a variety of veteran programs and services to help you take the steps that are right for you. What’s more, thanks to the tremendous support of our donors, you never pay a penny to get the help you need to build the future you deserve.
Here, you’re not a member – you’re an alumnus, a valued part of a community that’s been where you’ve been, and understands what you need. Everything we offer is free because there’s no dollar value to finding recovery and no limit to what you can achieve.
The Southwest Lending Closet is a 501(c)(3) organization. Tax deductible donations raised through various efforts are the backbone to sustain our mission. Monetary and equipment donations from the public are greatly appreciated and needed to ensure our continued existence. Throughout the years, the Southwest Lending Closet has also been supported by the cities of Avondale, Buckeye, Goodyear, Litchfield Park and Tolleson through competitive grant processes. The Closet has also been aided by organizations such as Kare Bears, Kiwanis, Rotary, the Southwest Chamber of Commerce, and other businesses in the Southwest Valley. The Closet has also been the beneficiary of funds (due to nominations) by foundations such as those run by the American Express, Arizona Cardinals, Bank of America, Channel 12, and Wells Fargo, as well as the Tohono O’odham Nation.
