Give More Than Thanks
As we celebrate Thanksgiving today by overindulging in all that wonderful food and drink, take a minute to think about those who cannot do the same. Please consider making a donation to organizations like the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona or the Salvation Army to help with the hunger problem in our city.
Salvation Army donations can be dropped off at 1001 N. Richey Blvd. and the Salvation Army's Hospitality House, 1021 N. 11th Ave. Donations also can be mailed to 1001 N. Richey Blvd., Tucson, 85716.
The Community Food Bank is at 3003 S. Country Club Road. Call 622-0525 or visit communityfoodbank.com for info on making donations.
Also, Ideal Physical Therapy is conducting its third annual food drive through Dec. 20. Food donation boxes can be found at all of its Tucson clinics. To find the location nearest you, go to idealphysicaltherapy.com.
