In the sweltering summer heat deep in the Arizona countryside tucked away in a secluded ranch. The hum of machines exploring the desert is echoed far from the ranch. After the dust had settled and the hot desert sun had set, the guys settled in for a focus of the day’s event. After a day of rugged trails, the ranch had grown quiet while the group discussed the true reason for the day.
What seemed like a day of fun in the desert was much more than that. While networking, drinks, and fun was a great way to spend the day, the group knew that there was much more to be accomplished that day. For the first-ever Valley Guardians event was in full swing and the legacy of the Valley Guardians was set into motion.
Among the many donors in the room was Mike Arce, CEO of Loud Rumor. A family man and energetic CEO he could see the potential of the impact the Valley Guardians could have to change the future of the valley.
“I was introduced to the Valley Guardians by one of the founders, Loren Howard. We had worked closely and he had mentored me in the past and I could tell he was passionate about it. I had a great day out in the desert and met so many amazing people.” Said, Mike Arce
The Valley Guardians is about making a lasting impact. With the help of our donors and sponsors, we work closely to ensure that the most deserving children get a fighting chance at a better life. Whether it is a scholarship, a mentorship or leadership program, a sick child whose family is in need of financial help, or even just a Christmas gift. The Valley Guardians ensure that no matter the circumstance, every child gets the chance they deserve at a great childhood.
“What appealed to me most about the Valley Guardians is that they are making a lasting difference in the community and not just a band-aid to a bigger problem. We are showing these kids their true potential, and are mentoring them into a better life through education.” Mike continued.
Making An Impact
Children in poor families often ‘miss out’ on key parts of being a kid. Anything from birthdays, holidays, and everyday life are hard for children in low-income families. With many families struggling to survive, children often don’t get access to the same educational opportunities as others. This educational gap can make it hard for anyone to succeed. With the Valley Guardians, no child gets left behind.
“I just really like helping people succeed, really understanding how to make a huge impact for one person as much as I can.” Mike continued on why the Valley Guardians resonated with him. Loud Rumor continues to sponsor the Valley Guardians, and MIke himself personally donates to the cause each year.
There are many charities out there, but unfortunately (with many of them), the dollars don’t always go directly to the cause. This makes it hard to see how your donation is making a difference for your community. The Valley Guardians is a local Phoenix charity that ensures that every dollar raised helps children right here to get the help they need to succeed.
