Arizona's Children Association (ACA) opened the doors to their beautiful KARE Center in Tucson, for our November Mixer. Arizona's Children Association is a wonderful organization and a huge asset to the community. They have several programs that assist children in Arizona's foster care system. As guests arrived for the mixer, staff and volunteers of the KARE Center gave tours of the beautifully restored building , and told us more about the work that they do on a daily basis. At this particular location, ACA helps relatives who are assuming care of another family members child, or children. The staff here provide invaluable support and resources for so many families in our community.
In preparation for the holidays, and in the spirit of giving, instead of guests bringing a raffle prize, Arizona's Children Association requested gifts for their Gifts of Hope Toy Drive. Our generous business owners stepped up and brought wrapped gifts to help the ACA make a great holiday for children in our community!
To support Arizona's Children Association's Penny Pitch, LFA, America's Mattress, and A&E Recycled Granite came together to help raise donations. A&E Recycled Granite donated a beautiful granite fire pit, and dropped it off in America's Mattress' new location so patrons could donate and enter to win the fire pit. To participate and donate, you can find out more here.
Local First Arizona Executive Director Kimber Lanning, and Southern Arizona Director Erika Mitnik-White announced Buy Local Month from November 27 - December 24, and the importance of shopping local this holiday season. There are deals going on around the state, and tips for going local at the Buy Local Month website, and you can register your business to participate as well!
Thanks to all who came and be sure to join us at our next mixer on Wednesday, December 2nd from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, at America's Mattress on 2303 E. Grant Rd.
