Because of the pandemic we cannot always help charitable organizations in person, but we can help them through our donations.
Today more people are in need than ever and your donation of any amount can enable them to meet their basic needs. If you are able, please consider donating to one of these supporting groups.
TIHAN (Tucson Interfaith HIV/Aids Network)– They routinely provide care packages with food and toiletries to those living with HIV. Check their website https://tihan.org for how to donate.
Sister Jose Women’s Center – They are supporting a number of homeless women who are living in their facility during the pandemic and they are also providing support for those still on the street. You can help, see https://www.srjosewomensshelter.org.
Primavera Men’s Shelter – They support homeless men in their shelter and have them working on various projects to gain job skills and restart their lives. You can donate to the Primavera Foundation with Men’s Shelter in the memo line. More info on their web site https://www.primavera.org/what-we-do/survival/mens-shelter.html
John B. Wright Elementary – When the schools were closed, they went to online classes. Unfortunately, many of the students did not have computers to access their lessons. A teacher, Sheree Garcia purchased computers and food and went to her student’s homes to deliver them, so they could do their lessons. See Tucson.com article https://tucson.com/news/local/amidpandemic-tucson-educators-form-grassroots-system-to-support-families-inneed/article_3a336123-ca47-5add-880f-2f3c23f0669e.html#4 To help defray her personal cost, send a check to the John B. Wright PTO at the school address: 4311 E. Linden St., Tucson, AZ 85712, with Sheree Garcia in the memo line.
