A number of Ahwatukee businesses are offering discounts or holding promotions to help support the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Make March Meaningful campaign.

From now through March 31, they are raising money for the foundation’s Hope Fund, which helps the hospital launch new programs, purchase essential equipment, conduct cutting-edge research and provide charitable care.
