HOLIDAY FOOD BASKETS
Child Family Services in Tucson help families in need, many of which have children with severe developmental disabilities such as Down’s Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy. In conjunction with behavioral health services, assistance for children and young adults may include daily structured activities, in-home care, and caregiver relief. For over 20 years PCA-SAR has sponsored charity raffles and charity autocross events to provide funding to Child Family Services for holiday food baskets. This endeavor was started by Dick Huhn, a former PCA-SAR board member, and in his honor we continue this tradition. In this way, we hope to make these families holidays a little brighter. For more information and volunteer services, please contact PCA-SAR liaison Patsy Conklin.
