A Note from the Assistance League of Phoenix program "Operation School Bell"

Desert Schools has always championed community involvement, and to celebrate 75 years of serving the Valley, they wanted their true focus to be the community itself. With their 75th Anniversary "Shine On" campaign, they intend to highlight charities and projects that represent the credit union's values and create a positive impact on the community. Our school district has benefitted from one of these charities, Assistance League of Phoenix, and we hope that you'll join us in voting for them to win the $30,000 final grant from Desert Schools. Make a difference in children's lives and vote today
