Healthy Giving:

Panhandling impacts our community and there no easy and fast solutions to address its causes andIt's OK to say no to panhandling. effects.  Often, we are compelled to give to those who are struggling to make ends meet in hopes our generosity will make a difference. But is giving to people who are panhandling the best way to help? 

The Gilbert area is fortunate to have many non-profits and faith-based groups that provide food, shelter, and other resources 365 days a year.  These groups don’t just connect people to resources that improve their lives and help to end their situation; they provide human connections that can lead someone on the streets to feel valued, understood, and worthy of a better life.  Healthy giving is about working together with these groups rather than doing it alone. 

We encourage you to learn more about panhandling - what is it, who does it, and why? Learn more here.
