April 4th is Arizona Gives Day. It’s the one day when thousands of people use their credit cards to give generously to their favorite Arizona-based charities.
And what a giving society we are.
Since 2013, the single, statewide day of giving has raised $7.4 million for Arizona nonprofits.
Here are some food-based charities to consider:
Coyote TaskForce (CTF) is a 501-C3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide vocational and pre-vocational services for adults recovering from chronic and persistent mental illness through three programs: Our Place Clubhouse, Cafe 54, and Truck 54.
The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona responds to the root causes of hunger and seeks to restore dignity, health, opportunity and hope to people living in poverty. Our mission is to change lives in the communities we serve by feeding the hungry today, and building a healthy, hunger-free tomorrow.
Their mission is to create and support accessible community gardens with Tucsonans of diverse experience levels, abilities and cultures in order to educate, foster wellness, and enhance the environment for people, plants, and pollinators.
Iskashitaa Refugee Network empowers refugees by creating opportunities to better integrate them with the larger Tucson community while gaining skills that serve them in America.
