Operation Fix It provides assistance to Scottsdale home owners with exterior improvements to their properties when they are unable due to financial/physical constraints. Many of our clients are our elderly facing potential fines from Code Enforcement notices they have received. Common types of assistance we provide to low income qualifying applicants are:
This program is not funded by the City and operates on donations both financial and in kind and, the support of our incredible volunteers who contribute their precious time, sweat and dedication to our mission which is: Driven by a need that promotes meaningful sustainability for our residents, Operation Fix It provides an innovative approach to replenish and renew those residential properties that may have fallen on challenging times. As “neighbors helping neighbors”, our like-minded sponsors and supportive volunteers work together to provide this meaningful community service.
Collaborating as a team, benefits Scottsdale Rotary Park and surrounding neighborhoods. In November 2021, the Neighborhood Advisory Commission, Operation Fix It, Scottsdale Parks and Recreation Department, and employees of private sector company, Republic Services, contributed an overall investment of approximately $21,000 to improve this neighborhood park. $10,000 in Neighborhood Enhancement funds was provided for the purchase of materials, including 70 trees, by the commission and $11,000 in labor costs provided by the 125 volunteers from Republic Services. Notably, in addition, Republic Services also made a financial donation of $2,500 to Operation Fix It, which will continue to help this city program pay it forward in other Scottsdale neighborhoods. Thank you to everyone that participated in one form or another making this an extremely successful event!
