SAEMS is hosting a Holiday Community Drive to benefit The Primavera Foundation and The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona

With the holidays coming up, SAEMS is hosting a community drive to help those in need around the Tucson community. Throughout this holiday season, we will be accepting both physical and monetary donations to benefit both of The Primavera Foundation and The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

About the Organizations

The Primavera Foundation provides pathways out of poverty through safe, affordable housing, workforce development, and neighborhood revitalization.

Currently, about 700 of bottles are filled on a weekly basis with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, sunscreen, body wash, and toothpaste which are provided as “survival kits” to the program’s participants.

The Community Food Bank distributes fresh produce and non-perishable food to a vast network of community partners throughout the state and across the country. They collaborate with local agencies, health institutions and government to revitalize neighborhoods and build a stronger food economy.

$1 helps feed 2 families!
