FREE - Hot Holiday Meals
Without Walls Christian Church will be providing and delivering hot holiday meals to About Care clients and their families. If you are interested in receiving holiday meals, please contact About Care at 480.832.2331.
The ARIZONA STATE CHARITABLE TAX CREDIT FOR THE WORKING POOR allows you to receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit, up to $400 if you file a joint return or up to $200 if you file a single return, on your Arizona state income tax when you give to About Care for those who qualify.
This means your dollars can benefit the many people About Care serves, yet it won’t come out of your pocket! Many people are weary about taking advantage of this credit because they’re not 100% sure it’s really going to come back to them in their refund. About Care is willing to refund back your entire donation should you not receive the tax credit for whatever reason. To learn more, Call About Care today at 480.802.2331.

Thank you Data Doctors and The Kings Reply Ministry
When one of our Neighbors found himself bedridden, Jeff Schwimmer, owner of Data Doctors and spokesman for The Kings Reply Ministry, was quick to provide what Burt considers to be an enormous Blessing in the way of a brand new laptop. This laptop provides 3 things that Burt has been doing without, a wide screen, keypad, and perhaps most importantly, a webcam and link to the outside world via skype. When we asked Jeff if he would like to share a few words with our neighbors and volunteers, he simply said, "Just Quote ...And The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40" Check out The Kings Reply on FaceBook.
Our Wish List
About Care is currently looking for a local restaurant to help us honor our volunteers on a monthly basis. We are seeking to have a volunteer of the month enjoy lunch for 2 (which hopefully would include a client who is homebound). If you know of anyone who can help us with this, please contact us at 480.802.2331.
We need the following
- Donated Office Space
- Gift Cards
- Gas Cards
- Volunteer Name Tags
- About Care Shirts for Staff and volunteers
If you or anyone you know can help us with any of these items, please call us today at 480.802.2331. Your donation is tax deductible as we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
