Market on the Move
In October of 2010, the Market On the Move (MOM) was born. The 3000 Club partnered with churches, schools and other non-profit organizations to host weekly events where semi-truck loads of produce were brought into the valley where a supporter can donate $10 and receive up to 60 lbs. of produce that they can share with anyone they know who are in need. By end of the winter produce in May 2014, there were more than 50 distribution sites in metro Phoenix and in Tucson with over 30 million pounds of produce have been rescued and redistributed.
During the hotter summer months, we run only out of our Phoenix and Tucson warehouses 6am-8am as a prepackaged drive-through only.
Host sites start up every October-January (sites are added every weekend as we get into the new produce season) and continue through the first weekend of June.
If you have any questions for the greater Tucson area, please contact us via email or call us (520)861-9774.
MOM's Corner & MOM'ers Shop for a Cause
Nothing useful goes to a landfill is our mission statement here at The 3000 Club. In the spirit of that, we utilize every donation whether a shirt, computer, or dish, and we reach out and look for any need in our communities and share before placing any item within the MOMer's Shop for resale (far westside of the building). All items within our "MOMers Corner" are items that are just open boxed or returns that were unable to be repackaged or sold retail. There are "gangas" for you!
We have a huge assortment of refurbished electronics, desktops, laptops, etc. for resale. We offer these items within the Computer Shop in Tucson with hours Mondays-Fridays 1030am-430pm. The public has access to these items and can be seen in the 4515 suite (far eastside of building)
MOMers shop for a cause is open to the public! To our partners as a Thank you benefit for supporting us, you have special access to MOMs Corner.
Current hours are:
Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10am-5pm and Saturday 7am-2pm.

Recycle Our Waste Stream
Some items will invariable no longer be useful. When this End of Life happens, The 3000 Club will break down the items and process them for recycle instead of simply throwing it away. Even items that have been disposed of by other organizations or charities. For example within the Market On the Move (M.O.M.) program, we have reached at 99.2% recycle rate. We do this through filling food banks, pantries, sharing with others, as well as feeding programs. If it reaches too low of quality for human consumption, it is used for animal feed. Once it degrades further, the excess is composted. Over 99% of the produce we receive will not go to the landfill.
This core concept is carried through-out our whole donation process. If it works or can be used, we redirect its purpose. If it is non-functional or broken, we break it down and recycle. With computers and electronics they are refurbished for our Computers for Education program. Non-functional items are broken down and recycled for their materials.

Veterans Civilians Outreach (VHO)
An unfortunate thing we witness in America is that our people have put their lives on the line for our country and freedoms, only to return with injuries, PTSD and other mental issues that sometimes prohibit them from returning to a normal civilian life. Sadly, over 45,000 veterans are homeless in the United States today. We are partnered with different organizations to be able to feed and distribute blankets to these brave people in need.
Another astonishing number is that over half a million people are living on the streets in the United States today. A quarter of this group unfortunately, is children. The uses of blankets are endless as they can provide not only comfort and warmth, but a softer and much more comfortable sleeping arrangement.
For as little as a $3 donation, we are able to supply one blanket to someone in need.
The 3000 Club also works to address the immediate needs of those struggling in the aftermath of both natural & man-made disasters. In hopes of responding more effectively to these situations as they occur, we actively seek out partners and resources. We also conduct supply/equipment drives throughout the year . By preparing in advance, we can do more to provide the aid and relief that people in crisis need.
To help in this effort, the following items can be donated at both our warehouses anytime:
First Aid Supplies
Lotions and SunBlocks
Pots & Pans
Single Linen Sheets
