Provision Project Is Proud to Participate in Arizona Gives Day, April 4, 2017

Provision Project will be joining Arizona Gives Day, along with hundreds of other nonprofits from all over the state on Tuesday, April 4, to raise much-needed funds. Through azgives.org, donors will be able to support their favorite nonprofit(s) for exactly 24 hours of virtual giving to strive for additional cash incentive prizes. Sponsored by FirstBank, this 5th annual day of fundraising is a community-led effort to invest in our state. Arizona Gives Day has raised $7.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since its founding in 2013.

Provision Project is an Arizona-based non-profit organization that serves women with breast cancer across the country. Founder Jan James says, “We’re very grateful that Arizona has a focused day of giving that will allow all non-profits like Provision Project attract new donors and highlight their mission to the public.”

Breast cancer affects families in devastating ways. Most people think of the physical side effects that women endure when going through treatment. But the financial side effects of breast cancer can be catastrophic to many families. An unexpected, life-threatening illness can make paying the most basic of bills impossible. Provision Project is there to help with emergency provisions, standing in the gap when women have nowhere else to turn.

From now until 11:59 p.m. on April 4, supporters of Provision Project can go to azgives.org and select Provision Project to make a direct contribution. These donations are crucial to helping fund our efforts throughout the year.

About Provision Project

The mission of Provision Project is to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer. The breast cancer battle is real. The news of diagnosis is hard to receive. Treatment is scary. And for some women, life has become nearly impossible. Marriages have ended. Jobs have been lost, or they’re too sick to work. Now, in addition to fighting for their lives, they are battling to keep up with the most basic of bills: food, rent, utilities, gas, medical co-pays.  It’s heartbreaking.

That’s why Provision Project was created.  Provision Project makes a way for women in active breast cancer treatment to receive tangible help quickly. We hope you’ll join us.

Help Keep the Lights On!

#GivingUtilities on #GivingTuesday – November 29, 2016

Shanna is a dedicated single mom to two beautiful kids, Resean and Reana. She loves helping people through her job as a healthcare worker. She’s proud of being able to have a job that provides for her children and helps people with their medical needs.

A few months ago, Shanna got the news that changed her world forever. She was diagnosed with breast cancer. At 40 years old and being the head of a single-income household, Shanna moved from helping others to needing help herself.  “I’m normally the one that everyone calls when they need help. This is a very different position to be in, having to ask for help,” Shanna said.

With a growing mountain of medical bills, Shanna got the notice that her electricity would be turned off the next day. She had fallen behind in her payments, and she didn’t know where to turn for help.

That very day, a representative from Provision Project’s supporter, Valley Sleep Center, came to her office to deliver a plastic pink cup that included a flyer about Provision Project from VSC’s owner and breast cancer survivor, Lauri Leadley. Just as Shanna was worrying about how to pay her utility bill, a solution appeared!  After confirming that Shanna was a qualified candidate, Provision Project paid her past due bill and kept the lights on.

This #GivingTuesday, help women like Shanna keep the lights on for their families through #GivingUtilities. Provision Project pays more utility bills than anything else, averaging $156. Thank you for your help!

More About Shanna’s Family

When Provision Project spoke with Shanna, she was overflowing with praise for children. Her 17-year-old son, Resean, is an avid football player, a good student, and holds down a weekend job. Her 12-year-old daughter, Reana, is a straight-A student who has been a tremendous help since Shanna’s breast cancer diagnosis. Reana begged Shanna to stay overnight with her during her hospital stay, logs the output of Shanna’s drains, and faithfully keeps the ice water pitcher filled. While Reana’s “plans” are to become a lawyer, we wonder if she’s not going to move into the healthcare field.

Provide with 5!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The country turns pink. You can’t escape it.

EVERY month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Provision Project. EVERY month we receive applications from women who need help paying their bills while fighting breast cancer. Funding is needed EVERY month to help. We need your help!

Five dollars. Most of us spend five dollars without blinking. At the coffee shop. At a convenience store. At a fast food restaurant. At the drug store. Five dollars. It’s not a lot, right?

So can we ask you to donate at least $5 a month for the next year? If you do …. and if others do …. we will be able to help more women at higher levels of assistance. Many small donations can have BIG IMPACT!

Our goal is to get 500 new donors who will give a minimum of $5 per month for a year this October. Please help us reach this goal so more women can be helped in the upcoming year!
