Even if you've never played dodge ball or haven't played since school, come out and join in the fun to benefit Joshua Tree Feeding Program, Inc. and Joshua Tree Pet Assistance Project! Our organizations provide weekly food boxes for hundreds of people in the Valley who are living with HIV/AIDS and their pets. All of the monies raised will go towards providing food and necessities for our client families.
Form your own team of friends and co-workers or join a team the day of the tournament. The main objective of each team is to eliminate all members of the opposing team by hitting them with thrown balls, catching a ball thrown by a member of the opposing team, or forcing them to move outside the court boundaries when a ball is thrown at them. This is a friendly game using small soft balls.
Watching dodge ball is lots of fun and there will be vendor booths to browse so if you don't want to play we encourage you to come over anyway and join us!
Since the beginning of Joshua Tree, 25 years ago, Miss Ebony has been a driving force in helping us raise money. Whenever she was ask to help for a Joshua Tree event or a fundraiser she always said yes to us.
Miss Ebony is an ICON in the Arizona Community and someone who can never be replaced.
The Board of Directors, Volunteers, and Clients of Joshua Tree Feeding Program will miss our Morrie Carter aka Miss Ebony and she will always be loved by us.
R.I.P. Morrie Carter aka Miss Ebony!
There will be a memorial service for Miss Ebony which will be held on January 11th at 12:30pm at Alwin House, 1204 E Roosevelt (corner of N 12th St)
The family has decided that because of Miss Ebony's love and commitment to Joshua Tree, that in lieu of flowers, people should make donations to Joshua Tree.

Joshua Tree would like to let Our Community know that while we wait for the official re-instatement of our 501(c)(3) status by the IRS, we have partnered with 2 agencies allowing us to continue to receive donations.
In its 25 years of existence the Joshua Tree Feeding Program has been blessed with many individuals who have voluntarily given of themselves in fulfilling the Vision and the Mission that is Joshua Tree. Each one is to be honored and recognized for their own merits but there is one, Scott Richard Robinson, who, on August 28th, passed from our presence; leaving an irreproachable legacy of selfless love and dedication.
We, the volunteers and clients of Joshua Tree will remember you, Scott, with tears and laughter, for your unique sense of humor, your unshakable calm, patience and understanding and your Heart of Gold. Your family can be proud and your Joshua Tree family is proud to have been graced with your presence and your love. Thank you and we will miss you.
