Community Story Update
Each week we select a story from a member of the community being directly impacted by the United for Southern Arizona COVID-29 Fund.
Arivaca Helping Hearts: We are working with a disabled grandmother in Arivaca who has been raising her grandson for the past 14 years since he was six years old. The grandson was laid off due to COVID-19, and since then, has only been able to find temporary jobs, doing yard work and other chores for residents of Arivaca. Recently, the grandmother fell in their home. The fall caused damage to the floor, and between her Social Security and her grandson’s limited income, they cannot cover the needed repairs. We are happy to report that the materials necessary for this job are being donated. Arivaca Helping Hearts is providing additional United Way COVID funds to help the family cushion the blow of this unforeseen expense.”
Now, more than ever our community's
Big Challenges call for Big Solutions
We need your continued support to provide life-saving services to our community as we struggle through the COVID-19 Crisis. Your gift to this fund will quickly support a child, family, or older person with what they need most during this difficult time. This year Tucson needs you to GIVE BIG and GIVE UNITED.
