Donation Drive For Chinle Flood Victims
Camelback Moving held a donation drive in partnership with Glenda Wheeler to support families affected by floods in the community of Chinle in Northern Arizona. On April 23rd Chinle suffered serious flooding and subsequent damages. Due to limited resources and available aid, they are still struggling to recover. Camelback Moving delivered 2 runs of donations to benefit the flood victims in the Chinle area! Thank you for everyone who contributed with goods and to the go-fund-me as we were able to deliver (4) 26 foot trucks of goods throughout July and August. A huge shout out to our partners Glenda Wheeler and Dzil Yi Jiin Rescue for bringing this cause to our attention and organizing the distribution of goods.
Billy’s Place 10th Annual Hike For Hope
On Saturday, April 1st Camelback Moving proudly donated $20,000 to Billy’s Place for their 10th annual Hike for Hope fundraiser. Billy’s Place is a local nonprofit that aims to provide support to children and their families through their grief journey.
The organizations connected after Camelback Moving’s President Chad Olsen pledged to pay an NBA fine for Phoenix Suns Head Coach Monty Williams or make a like-sized donation to a charity. After seeing the viral Twitter post, Kim Humphrey with Billy’s Place, a Suns Charities recipient, reached out as they were just days away from their largest annual fundraiser, Hike for Hope. Camelback Moving was honored to participate and present the $20,000 donation to Billy’s Place to continue doing the amazing work they do in our communities.
“This unexpected and generous donation from Camelback Moving helped us surpass our fundraising goal! When Chad and I connected, he immediately saw the importance of our mission and knew he wanted to make an impact. Partners like Camelback Moving make it possible for Billy’s Place to continue to support kids and families experiencing grief and we are looking forward to continuing this partnership. We are so grateful!!” -Kim Humphrey, Billy’s Place
“We support Monty and the Suns but more importantly we support local charities making a difference in our communities an believe in giving back.” -Chad Olsen, President of Camelback Moving
We could hardly contain our excitement to deliver all the toys and donations from the Toy Drive out to the Hopi Reservation and Village of Tewa on Saturday. In new toys alone, every child from 0 to 17 years of age received 3 gifts each, totaling 645 gifts. This does not count all the gift cards that were given to teens, and the numerous gently used toys and clothing that are still being processed to be given to the families. This is in addition to the new heaters and blankets that are being given to families…not only did we warm their hearts we warmed their houses. We want to say thank you to all those who donated!
We’re back at it again this year, check out how to get involved here!

We’re thrilled to know the donation Camelback Moving made will cover 35,000 meals for those in need! We love supporting causes that greatly impact our area…and this money will be put to good use to help feed those suffering from food scarcity.
The White Dove Thrift Shoppes
The White Dove Thrift Shoppes support Hospice of the Valley’s mission—bringing comfort and dignity as life nears its end. Sale proceeds fund many specialized and innovative patient-care programs and help lower the cost of charity care.
“Hospice of the Valley was so great with my father Jimmy a few years back, that we jumped at the opportunity to partner with them. Through the pandemic, proceeds were raised by moving, warehousing and liquidating donation furniture we received from our wonderful customers. Feeling blessed to give back to this great organization and help complete the karmic circle that goes round and round.” – Chad Olsen, President Camelback Moving
Pre/post pandemic – the partnership we have established is a great fit as they are able to accept large amounts of donation furniture and household goods. These are either donations directly from Camelback Moving, our vendors or our customers that wish to give to this wonderful cause. The goods are sold at the many White Dove Thrift Shoppes across the valley with the proceeds going to fund the organization.
“So grateful to Camelback Moving! President Chad Olsen presented Hospice of the Valley with a BIG check to support our charity care programs. His awesome company auctioned off items that could not be accepted by our The White Dove Thrift Shoppes during the pandemic, and generously donated the proceeds! #rockstarcompany #communitycaring”
– Lin Sue Cooney, Director of Community Engagement at Hospice of the Valley
