Are donations to Run2Serve tax deductible?
Yes. Run2Serve is a fundraising event for Hospitality Services Center, Inc. ("HSC"). HSC is an Arizona 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable corporation, so all donations are tax deductible.
What is the mission of Hospitality Services Center, Inc.?
The Mission of Hospitality Services Center is to serve our community by:
  • Identifying practical needs in our community, in local ministries and in other service organizations in the Phoenix Metro Area
  • Coordinating volunteers to meet those needs
  • Providing low-cost housing for short-term volunteers (and guests) coming from across the US and Canada

HSC operates the Phoenix Menno Guest House which offers extremely affordable rental rates to persons (including participants in the Service Opportunities for Older Persons program) who travel to the Phoenix area with the deliberate intention of volunteering in our community.

What are the proceeds from the Run2erve Event used for?
The funds raised through HSC's Run2Serve Event are used primarily for rent, utilities, maintenance, upkeep, and supplies. The HSC Program Directors and its Board of Directors all are volunteers.
What charitable groups has HSC coordinated volunteers for?
HSC coordinates opportunities for volunteers with HSC's mission partners, including Goldensun Peace Ministries, International Rescue Committee, Faith Community Nursing, West-Side Food Bank, MDS Home Repair, and others.

Some of the ways that HSC volunteers are serving include:

  • Helping the homeless by providing supplies from area food banks
  • Teaching English as a second language
  • Repairing damage to and doing reconstruction and improvements in neighborhood homes
  • Providing nursing skills for home care and consultation.
