Ron Simpson, the Phoenix Pass Board Chairman, encourages parents to use the campaign as an opportunity to educate their children on the issues of homelessness and hunger. “This will be a fun event for the kids, but also an educational opportunity,” said Simpson. “It is never too early to teach our children that we all have a responsibility to give back to our community and to help those in need.”
