Much like a Valentine’s Day present, Northland Family Help Center received a heartfelt gift from Arizona Snowbowl in the form of a $12,500 check donation Feb. 14.
The Help Center was the chosen beneficiary of Snowbowl’s Jan. 27 Community Day and received 20 percent of ticket sales purchased at the ski resort on the designated day. The resort provided social media promotion prior to the event in addition to a table for donations and information about the organization throughout Community Day.
The funds will be used by the Flagstaff Initiative Against Trafficking (FIAT) to assist human trafficking victims and to host community awareness activities and trainings.
“Northland Family Help Center was delighted to be chosen as the beneficiary, and is grateful for the tremendous generosity. Many of the administrative staff including Rob Linde & Matt Bruton, were instrumental in making the day a great success,” the Help Center wrote in a statement.

FIAT is a community collective of professional service providers and volunteers housed by Northland Family Help Center. It was created in August 2017 as a means to deter people from purchasing sex and to provide resources for trafficking victims and survivors. From 2017 to 2018, FIAT identified 63 adults and 36 youth in the Flagstaff community who experienced trafficking.
Community Day was another means for the organization to spread the word about human trafficking in northern Arizona to the public.
“We are so thankful for this partnership, and appreciate your time and dedication to making positive changes in the Flagstaff Community,” FIAT wrote in a Facebook post.
