Our mission statement is simple: Nothing useful goes to the landfill! We can reuse, redirect, refurbish or recycle.

99% of our MOM program stays out of the landfill. We feed people and backyard animals. We share with food banks and pantries. We compost and worm gardening and reuse the produce boxes. 

$10 Donation for up to 60lbs.

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)373-5256 or text (520) 861-9774.

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.

Homeless Shelters
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. 

Disaster Relief

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:

  • Beans

  • Biscuits/Crackers

  • Blankets

  • Canned Goods

  • Chap-Stick

  • Clothes (Adult’s/Children’s)
