Students Give to Refugees
From empty to full, our donation closets are now brimming with hygiene supplies, children’s toys and diapers thanks to the generosity of local student organizations. Last month, students from Salpointe Catholic High School and the University of Arizona donated over $2,000 worth of items for refugees new to our community.
