AZ Daily Star: Program hopes to brighten holidays for 4,000 children
The turkeys are not yet stuffed, but supporters of holiday toy drives for children hope Tucsonans will add a toy or gift card to holiday shopping lists.
“While people are thinking about spending Thanksgiving with family and friends, maybe they can think about giving to a cause for people in need. When they are together for the holidays, it is actually a good time to plan ahead about making a charity part of their holiday giving,” said Monica Durand, development and community relations manager for Aviva Children’s Services, which provides services for child victims of abuse, neglect and poverty who are in the care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety.
