Care Fair Tempe
Sometimes we are those who need some extra help, sometimes we are helping others and often we do both.

Care Fair Tempe 2021 Planning is Underway
Tempe Community Council and the City of Tempe is working in compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, state and local agencies to ensure safety of our citizens during COVID-19 pandemic.
Care Fair Tempe 2021 will not be held in person, however we are currently working to determine how to best connect community with and highlight ways to get help and give help in lieu of a one-day in-person event this year. Check back periodically for 2021 updates which will be posted here first.
We look forward to 2022 with hopes we can again return to the outdoor gathering of the many agencies providing human services and volunteer opportunities to all of us in Tempe.
Pre-COVID, our annual Care Fair Tempe is a fun and resource-filled event linking those in need with available services and those who care with volunteer opportunities. We have gathered at the Tempe Community Center Complex (Tempe Public Library outdoor courtyard) for a festival-like, one-stop event for community stop by and meet representatives of those offering assistance to enhance and help the individuals needing support whether it is related to aging, homelessness, addiction, child care, financial stability, domestic violence, disabilities, legal services, etc. At Care Fair Tempe there is some resource anyone could find beneficial to them in some way.
On average, over 50 local nonprofits and service providers have been available to provide information and answer questions about a variety of human services they offer and how you can help through volunteering and in-kind donations. It is a family friendly or individual interest event where all can visit resource booths, experience on-site services, play in the kid fun zone, grab a snack from food vendors, listen to music and enter into our gift card giveaways.
We look forward to 2022 for the return of in-person event, but also are excited to determine ways to connect with you virtually in a special way to provide resources you may need now in 2021.
