Our purpose is: “To provide for the betterment of the Tri-Community area by promoting Economic and Social opportunities while preserving our rich mining heritage”. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of volunteers in San Manuel, Arizona. There are no dues.
We’re always happy to have anyone join our group that is interested in helping our community grow. It is only through the involvement of the community that San Manuel can become the thriving community that it used to be.
Our Impact on the Area
The money we raise during our annual fund raisers, Copper Town Days and the Tri-Community Arts & Craft Fair goes back into the communities through donations that we make. We donate to The Elks Club to support their free Thanksgiving meal for veterans and families in the community, the Christmas party they put on for kids and for the All Night Graduation Party they sponsor for graduating seniors to have a safe place to celebrate.
In addition we donate to the Tri-Community Food Bank in Mammoth, Community Schools and the YESS Scholarship that is given to one boy and one girl in the 8th grade in San Manuel and Oracle that writes the best essay on “Why is it important to get an education?” In the past we also donated to Safe Journey House and Adelante Juntos.
