Holiday Giving for Under 12

The 2020 Holiday Giving for Under 12 was a rousing success. Members staying at home produced some wonderful gifts which shared with three local charity organizations, St. Vincent de Paul, Salvation Army and Old Pueblo Homeless shelter. Members dropped off hundreds of items in three locations in the Tucson area. Dolls, bears, blankets, sloths, toys, books and clothing were donated. These items were greatly appreciated by our charities. See the letter from St. Vincent de Paul.
