Well, my friends we have made it thru a very rough year to say the least. A lot of sorrow in many many families, but a lot positive in others. I hope this is something we won’t have to experience again for a long time.
But as always, our Pioneers have been out helping the poor, the sick and the hungry with on going projects. We received eight grants from the Don MacKenzie Charitable Foundation Fund this year.
Received funds for School Supplies (SoAZ), Save the Bee’s (SoAZ), Acacia Elementary (PHX), New Mexico Children’s Home Christmas. and Hope Women’s Center (Coolidge).
We also received a $500 anonymous donation to the Chapter and the person who donated also submitted a matching fund request to the company they worked for and we received that. Such a generous thing for someone to do.
We were able to give two scholarships this year one from the Chapter and one from Southern Arizona. The winners were Carson Di Maria and Hanna Lehrfeld. Each receiving $1000. We had many applicants and was very hard to decide on the winners. The Madlyn Rollins bequest, through Legacy West Pioneers awarded 10 – $1000 scholarships to Apache Junction High School in Apache Junction, AZ. New Mexico will be giving theirs out soon.
We are still fundraising on our web site aztelecompioneers.org. Also, on our website we have a donate button if you want to donate directly to our Chapter.
We are looking for volunteers to help with projects, be a board member. The Pioneers are going strong in Arizona and New Mexico and want to keep it going with help from the members and leadership roles from people that want to keep us strong and helpful to the community.

We are happy to announce a new member benefit program for you and your family. Brookdale Senior Living offers Pioneers discounts related to assisted living, independent living, memory care, skilled nursing, hospice, continuing care retirement communities and health care services. Senior Living residents enjoy a 7.5% off monthly fees, 10% off service rate for Private Duty Home Care and additional discounts for assisted living respite care.
I can personally attest that this is a wonderful benefit and an amazing offer. My mom was in a Brookdale assisted living community for several years and we were extremely pleased with the level of care, the attractive living apartments and the entertainment and activities they provided. The discount of 7.5% can translate to thousands of dollars in savings. And, this offer is available for you and anyone in your immediate family. I heartily endorse the Brookdale Senior Living program.
The Arizona Chapter received a grant for $300 for the Hope Womens Center in Coolidge AZ . They requested that we use the money for women’s underwear and we were able to provide 150 pairs for them to give to the ladies at the center
