Donors Help Mesa Nonprofit Deliver Bountiful Thanksgiving
By Laura Slawny - Wednesday Nov 22, 2023
An East Valley non-profit called Save the Family Foundation of Arizona is helping hundreds of families have a good Thanksgiving thanks to an army of donors. On Nov. 20, donors dropped off over 200 food baskets filled with potatoes, stuffing, corn, and more along with a 75-dollar gift card for the turkey and other essentials at the nonprofit's headquarters near University and Center Street.

Save the Family is grateful for generous donors like The Living Word Bible Church in Mesa and The Carol Royse Team that contributed 75 of the 200 baskets needed.

Among the biggest donors this month is The Rosendin Foundation, which presented the nonprofit with a 15-thousand-dollar grant. The Rosendin Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to make a positive impact on communities through financial grants and volunteer work. This donation will help the Mesa nonprofit carry out its mission to provide families with critical programs and services to address poverty, overcome homelessness, and achieve self-sufficiency.

“We are overwhelmed by The Rosendin Foundation's generosity, and we are grateful for the support it has provided us as we carry out our longstanding, 34-year mission. Their dedication to us as we seek to address and end generational poverty, which includes helping children reach their full potential, speaks to the Foundation’s dedication to our community,” said Robyn Julien, CEO of Save the Family. “We are thankful to Rosendin’s volunteers and donors who have boosted our efforts to end family homelessness.”

“Save the Family embraces the worth of all people by celebrating diversity and providing opportunities for anyone to achieve success through their individualized services,” said Jolsna Thomas, The Rosendin Foundation President. “As long-standing members of the community, we appreciate the dedication of the Save the Family team and their volunteers who are committed to ending family homelessness in the greater East Valley.”

The Rosendin Foundation is the charitable arm of Rosendin Holdings, the parent company of Rosendin, one of the nation's largest design-build specialty electrical contractors with a regional office in Tempe, and Modular Power Solutions (MPS), an offsite manufacturing solutions provider.

The Rosendin Foundation provides financial assistance to community nonprofits across the country that promote emotional, nutritional, and occupational health programs. These organizations benefit from the Foundation's financial grants and donations of up to $25,000 per organization. Through volunteer efforts and donation drives in 37 cities, the nonprofit empowers and inspires people to be their best.

Since its inception, The Rosendin Foundation has given over $1.87 million to nonprofit organizations in communities where Rosendin and MPS employees live and work. Contributions from Rosendin Holdings, as well as employees, retirees, and Foundation fundraisers, are the primary sources of funding. Applications for grants and emergency grants are available on the foundation's website at
