Arizonaâ€™s Children Association Raises Funds That Provide Essentials for Local Families
Join the Arizonaâ€™s Children Association (AzCA) on July 5 through September 30 to help raise money for the nonprofitâ€™s vital programs and services. During the event, people can donate by purchasing puzzle pieces, which serve as a visual representation of individuals and community resources uniting to bring families together one puzzle at a time. Donations will be tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the extent allowed by law.
For the duration of the fundraiser, AzCA will be sharing one familyâ€™s amazing story of success and journey with the organization. When the Williams family learned that their niece was going to be placed in out-of-home care, they began researching the process of becoming licensed foster care providers and found kinship support services through AzCA. With AzCAâ€™s support, they were able to take care of their niece, Aria, and help her cope with trauma she experienced. Today, she has a forever home with her extended family, who still has continued support from the nonprofit.
â€œThe Williams family is just one example of how AzCA helps reunite Arizonaâ€™s children with their loved ones,â€ said Barbara Krusko, chief development officer. â€œBy showing your support in the Lifeâ€™s a Puzzle fundraiser, you can help us provide this level of assistance to an even greater number of families that come to us in need.â€
