The holiday season can be especially difficult for those that are homeless, hungry, suffering from health conditions, or financial hardships. Reflecting on the last year, think of everything you have to be grateful for. Whether it is a roof over your head, material things, or the love and support of your family; these are things we may take for granted. Remember that there are many people in our own community that are not so lucky. Here are some ways you can give back this season:
*Metro Phoenix – Mesa, Tempe, Glendale, Gilbert, Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Peoria, Avondale, Chandler, Fountain Hills, Arcadia, Uptown, Downtown, Ahwatukee *Tucson Area – Oro Valley, Marana, Sahuarita, South Tucson, Casas Adobes, Catalina Foothills, Flowing Wells, Midvale Park, Tanque Verde, Tortolita, and Vail.
