Light the World

Light the World

Catholic Charities is proud to be part of the global #LighttheWorld initiative.

As a faith-based agency, we desire to serve our community in the Spirit of the Good Samaritan. We walk alongside the vulnerable and provide resources, support, and encouragement as they move from crisis to stability to thriving. The goal is to Light the World!

Giving Machines

The Giving Machines provide a family-friendly, fun and easy way to help our community’s most vulnerable. The large, red “vending machines” work in reverse, creating a memorable way to give to those in need during the Christmas season with a simple swipe of a credit card amid holiday festivities.

You can support local charities here in Arizona, by visiting Heritage Square, 6 E. Aspen Avenue in downtown Flagstaff.
The Giving Machines will be open to the public on Wednesday, Nov. 17 and will continue through December 1, 2022, daily from 9:00 a.m. to midnight.

Flagstaff is one of only 24 locations in the world to host Giving Machines!

This year, you will be able to choose between the following items to support our most vulnerable clients:
