The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona is proud to partner with KGUN 9 and Pat Parris to launch The Giving Project – Doing Well, By Doing Good. Each month, Pat will present a new nonprofit organization that is making a positive impact in our community and asks you to consider making a donation.
In addition, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona is matching the first $500 in donations each month. If you cannot give, you can still support our nonprofit community by sharing information about the project.
Our recipient this month is Bag It, a Tucson-based non profit that has grown in its 20 years to have a national reach. Bag It helps those diagnosed with cancer navigate a very difficult time, providing all the materials they need to organize medical documents, keep track of lab results and deal with the uncertainty of the disease. Bag It staff and volunteers distribute about 5,000 – 6,000 bags to patients around the U.S. each year.
