Hands 4 the Future is dedicated to giving back to the community in a gesture of fellowship. Providing gifts and school supplies for under-privileged children, while also helping families with food boxes.
In 2006 a core group of individuals, led by Paul Murillo and his wife, sought to give back to the community, in a gesture of fellowship. They chose to provide Christmas gifts to the under-privileged children in the west valley of Phoenix, AZ. As a result, this group known as “Hands for the Future” hosted a golf tournament to raise funds for this gift giving endeavor. Initial efforts provided about 50 bikes for the children in December 2006. As the years went by and player/sponsorship levels increased, the group was able to provide Back to School Backpacks and Holiday food boxes, in addition to the Christmas gifts.
One of the core members, Juan Rodriguez, expressed a desire for the group to recognize Veterans and their service to our country. In July 2017, we were able to implement a Veteran Recognition Program. Due to Juan’s passing later that year, we began offering this recognition in Juan’s honor, as of the July 2018 tournament.
In recent years, not only have we provided Back to School backpacks, Holiday meals / gifts, and Veteran recognition, we have provided assistance to low income communities in Show Low, AZ and Rocky Point, Mexico. We have also partnered with Palm Valley Church to sponsor a humanitarian effort in Africa.
Reach out to us directly if you would like to get involved in any way, whether that is by volunteering or through donations. Any helping hand is a hope for a brighter future.
