Sun City West residents have built an enviable reputation for helping others.
In addition to the many volunteer opportunities within the community, residents can be found helping our neighbors by tutoring children at nearby schools, building
homes for Habitat for Humanity, working at the
St. Mary's Food Bank or
Valley View Food Bank, and in many other ways.
Our Visitors Center is staffed with over 100 volunteers who provide community tours, answer visitor inquiries and act as an important community resource for Sun City West residents.
Volunteers play an important role at the PORA office where they assist in areas of Consumer Services, Adult Education, CC&Rs, and various office functions.
The 300 volunteers of the PRIDES meet every Saturday morning, and spend 1-1/2 hours maintaining the landscaping and picking up debris along more than 22 miles of Sun City West roadways. As a result, we live in one of the neatest, cleanest communities in the U.S. 365 days a year.
The largest volunteer organization is the Banner Health Volunteers with over 1,100 members. They serve in many capacities at our local Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center, which includes staffing a thrift shop whose proceeds provide medical equipment and supplies for the hospital.
Sun City West is also one of the safest communities, thanks to the many volunteers of the Posse who patrol the local streets 365 days a year. They provide extra ears and eyes for the County Sheriff's Department, and residents benefit from one of the lowest per-capita crime rates in the U.S. Providing these services for ourselves helps to further minimize our taxes.
Benevilla provides help for the home-bound and is one more of the many opportunities that exist for volunteers within the community.
Whatever your skills or interests, there is a rewarding opportunity awaiting you!
