Help make a child’s holiday

IMPACT of Southern Arizona’s Holiday Adopt-a-Child will get underway in October and November. Gifts will be provided to 200-250 local low-income children, newborn to 18 years old, to make their holiday season extra special. You can be part of this heartwarming project. For each child you adopt, you will receive his or her personalized wish list, which will include clothing items and two toys. We ask that you purchase new items and plan to spend between $50-$75 per child. Gifts will need to be wrapped and brought to IMPACT of Southern Arizona in mid-December.

IMPACT SoAZ programs include a food bank, which distributes U.S.D.A. emergency food boxes, produce, and meat as well as the Loving Threads Community Clothing Bank, which serves more than 800 individuals each month. IMPACT of Southern Arizona also operates a senior center at 16701 N. Oracle Rd., Ste. 145, serving lunch three days a week and providing meal delivery to homebound residents. Founded in 2000, IMPACT of Southern Arizona serves Catalina, SaddleBrooke, Oro Valley, Northwest Tucson, Southeastern Pinal County, and the Greater Vail area. The vision of IMPACT of Southern Arizona is to improve lives and inspire futures for local individuals and families.
