Protect Or Manage Money

Two Anthem nonprofits are hosting fundraisers this weekend. 

Youth for Troops volunteers will unload vehicles at Freeman Income Tax Service’s drive-thru shred event and walk the items to the truck. Participants can watch the items shred through a window in the truck. The event is free, and all donations will help Youth for Troops ship more care packages to deployed troops.

The event is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, at 41111 N. Daisy Mountain Drive, Suite 105, Anthem. There’s a limit of four banker-size boxes. To learn more about Youth for Troops, visit

Anthem Pets is having a fundraising garage sale from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, and Sunday, Jan. 17, at 2315 W. Clearview Trail, Anthem.

Donations for the sale can be dropped off in advance on house’s patio or driveway.

The following weekend, Anthem Pets is encouraging residents to bring gently used donations to the Goodwill Retail Store, 43240 N. Black Canyon Highway, Phoenix, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23. A donation will be made to Anthem Pets, so residents should mention the nonprofit’s name when they drop off items.
