The Phoenix Suns are committed to enriching Arizona communities. Each season, the Suns conduct outreach programs, make community appearances, and volunteer their time to positively influence the lives of Arizona’s youth and families. The Suns take great pride in building on the success of our community outreach initiatives. With a mission statement that includes a commitment to the community, the Suns will continue to work hard both on and off the court for years to come.
