Valley Comes Through for Parents and Children at Save the Family

Thanks to the generosity of church groups, businesses, clubs, organizations, families and individuals, more than 300 families celebrated Thanksgiving with a home-cooked meal and received Christmas gifts that made the holiday season bright. Save the Family Foundation of Arizona expresses its heartfelt appreciation for the many Valley supporters that came together to ensure our families were able to celebrate the holiday season with dignity and joy.

A special thank you to The Carol Royse Team and Desert Financial Credit Union for providing holiday gifts for families as well as volunteering during our busy delivery days.
