Philanthropy

The Mystical Order of the Phoenix Krewe has a strong sense of duty to our community and the people within it.  It is this desire to make a positive impact and help improve the lives of others that spearheads our Philanthropy Committee.  Our Phoenix sisters volunteer at Hotel Hope, Girls on the Run, gather supplies for local schools, donate holiday food baskets and gifts for families in need, and are now building free community little libraries. Please consider joining the Philanthropy Committee or donating your time and/or money to one of the many causes we support.

MOOTP Fire and Ice Little Library

The ladies of the Mystical Order of the Phoenix want to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers, and expanding book access for all through a network of book-exchange boxes called the Fire & Ice Libraries. We believe all people are empowered when the opportunity to discover a personally relevant book to read is not limited by time, space, or privilege.  Phoenix is holding a contest for the artwork on the Fire & Ice Libraries we build.

 

Guidelines for the Contest

Select float design 1 or 2, (this will be a front, back, and two sides) and design the float as your favorite Phoenix theme (ice or fire). Props can be added and Mardi Gras colors or Phoenix colors can be used. 3D prototypes or paper entries can be turned in. All entries must be turned in by our August membership meeting. This contest is open to all from ages 12-18 years. The design that is picked will win a prize and have their design used to build our first MOOTP Little Free Library.

We are also seeking donations to help build the library. The cost will be about $400 per library.

Hotel Hope

Hotel Hope moves women and children from homelessness to self-sufficiency through a three-stage service model that involves providing crisis intervention services, residential stability, and help in achieving economic self-sufficiency. Helping families to stay together, receive the necessary services and allow families to move to a permanent residence. Hotel Hope is a place where love is served to all and the Mystical Order of the Phoenix supports them in various ways; volunteering at their Hope Fest, feeding the residents, freshening up the playground, painting the building, and pampering the mothers on special days.
