Community Partners Wanted for Summer Heat Relief Campaign


With more than 5,000 seniors, veterans, men, women, youth and children without a place to call home, CBS 5 and CASS, Arizona’s oldest and largest emergency shelter, have joined forces to help raise awareness and funds for individuals experiencing homelessness in the heat of the summer. With daily temperatures reaching over 100 degrees in the metro Phoenix area, citizens are dying on the streets. CASS provides a respite from the heat with a comfortable place to rest.

CASS needs the support of businesses, individuals and community partners to kick-off the telethon with “challenge gifts,” specific funds that CASS can offer as —matching dollars— to motivate the television audience to GIVE BIG. Studies show that people are 22% more likely to give more if they are guaranteed their donations are doubled with a challenge gift.

The CBS 5 Pay it Forward Telethon is a great opportunity to show the community that your business is committed to helping Arizona’s families, veterans, seniors, and other individuals experiencing homelessness get back on their feet. Your support for CASS will be recognized by CBS 5’s strong media presence of nearly 70,000 households. Please consider partnering with CASS and CBS 5 to help end homelessness one life at a time.
