Chances are, you probably give back to Arizona on more than just one day each year. However, Arizona Gives Day is a special day dedicated to investing in Arizona and helping community members “find, learn about and contribute to the causes they believe in.”
While there are over one million nonprofits in the United States, the results of donating to local organizations are both discernible and far-reaching. Donate to the local food bank and know that more underserved people in your community are being fed. Give to a local rescue group and see the joy of your neighbors when they adopt their new pet. Invest locally and see exactly where your money goes, who it helps, and how it improves Southern Arizona.
Regardless of who you donate to today, tomorrow, or next year, your kindness is always greatly appreciated. Here are a few of our favorite food-related local nonprofits that you might consider supporting:
There are so many wonderful nonprofit organizations worth supporting in Southern Arizona. Casa Maria Soup Kitchen provides meals to those in need 363 days of the year. Kino Border Initiative works to make migration between the U.S. and Mexico more just, humane, and workable. Southwest Folklife Alliance connects cultures, communities, and heritage through a range of diverse programs. These organizations need your support to continue bringing food, culture, and diversity to Southern Arizona. Donate or set up a time to volunteer today.
