United Way Days of Caring will be Oct. 23rd and 24th.

This opportunity is for Easterseals Blake Foundation Aviva Children's Services located in Tucson, AZ. If you can
help locally, or are willing to send to Aviva Children's Services at 153 S Plumer Ave, Tucson, AZ 85719

This year's two-day project will be for Virtual Volunteers to gather items and put together personal hygiene kits
for foster youth and/or cleaning kits for foster families. We want foster children to have what they need to feel
clean and healthy and often times have to leave their homes without these items. We also want the foster homes
they are going to have the items they need to be clean and healthy.

If you can help to make one kit or 100 kits, it will be greatly appreciated. We help foster youth, as new children
arrive for our help every day. If you can get bulk items, we would be happy to put the kits together here at our
office. Whatever you and your family and friends can do to help would be greatly appreciated.

While we have this set as a 2 day project, this is an on-going need, as new children arrive everyday needing our help.
Please feel free to continue supplying the items and/or kits as much as you would like.

also know that we give gifts during the holidays to all the foster youth in our programs. We have around 2400
children that we try to give at least 2 gifts each during the holidays, as well as supplying the foster families
with food for holiday meals at Thanksgiving and again in December. If you want to or can assist with
holiday shopping for children and food for the families, please contact Yvette at Aviva Children's Services by
email: yhart@avivatucson.org

Mission Statement

The mission of the Easterseals Blake Foundation (EBF) is to enable each individual served to discover and meet his or her maximum potential for independent, productive living and developmental growth.

Description

WHAT MAKES US SPECIAL?

EBF is proud that nearly ninety cents of each dollar donated goes directly into services provided for children and adults. We are able to maintain this efficiency because we value partnerships and create strategic collaborations that are dedicated to making the most of every dollar raised.

Our priority is our clients and the families we serve.

WHY PARTNER WITH EASTER SEALS BLAKE FOUNDATION?

Founded in 1950, EBF has been serving individuals with disabilities and their families throughout Southern Arizona, with the capacity to positively impact the lives of over 1.3 million people each year. We currently have a presence and offer programs in Pima, Cochise, Santa Cruz, Graham, Pinal and Greenlee counties.

Every dollar raised for the organization goes back into our local community.
