Sun City West PRIDES
The SCW PRIDES Garage & Maintenance Area
The PRIDES are neighbors and fellow residents volunteering to keep Sun City West clean and beautiful.
The PRIDES work under the Adopt-A-Highway Program of Maricopa County. This includes the roadway from sidewalk to sidewalk and includes the medians in many of our SCW streets. From the sidewalk to the retaining walls, we work in conjunction with the Recreation Centers of SCW.
The areas maintained by the SCW PRIDES include:
1. All of R. H. Johnson from Bell Road to Grand Avenue
2. Meeker Boulevard from R. H. Johnson to Grand Avenue
3. Stardust from Beardsley to R. H. Johnson where there are retaining walls
4. Deer Valley Drive from 135th to the end
5. 151st from Deer Valley Drive to R. H. Johnson where there are retaining walls
6. Meeker and 135th to Crown Ridge to 133rd and Meeker
7. Meeker and Pyracantha to Crown Ridge to Spring Meadow to include Oxbow and Echo Mesa
8. The grounds and parking lots of the SCW Foundation and SCW Posse complex and Helping Hands & SCW PRIDES complex at the corners of R. H. Johnson and Stardust Boulevards.
Funding for tools and equipment is from donations by individuals, clubs, civic groups, religious organizations and businesses. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and donations are tax deductible.
Our Landscaping Teams make up the largest group of the SCW PRIDES and maintain the median strips, curbs, sidewalks, and grounds between the sidewalks and the retaining walls in the areas noted above.
Our Safety Team conducts activities to maintain safe working conditions in traffic areas as well as for personal safety.
The Irrigation Team checks 26 miles of the bubbler watering system each Saturday and Tuesday mornings, and performs emergency maintenance when needed.
The Maintenance Team performs maintenance on our 24 golf carts and pickup truck, tools, and equipment in our headquarters each Tuesday morning.
The Officers and Office Personnel perform administrative functions of the PRIDES - keep records, prepare accounting reports, communicate with members and the public, prepare a variety of documents, maintain WEB site, and manage eMail on our computer system, and purchase office supplies and equipment.
The Refreshment Team serves coffee, rolls, and donuts at our monthly meetings. The Sundome merchants provide us with the funds to purchase the above. The refreshment team also serves as hostesses at special events such as our spring social.
