June is TYP Pay It Forward Month

Tucson Young Professionals will be aiding the Primavera Foundation in replenishing their Starting Over Supplies (SOS) in the month of June for our Pay It Forward Month.

When a family or individual comes to Primavera with nothing, they try to provide them with SOS. For example, if the family is moving into the Bridges Housing Program and has nothing with them, Primavera gives them a laundry basket with dish soap, pots, pans, sheets, bath towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, a toothbrush, and other items. Or if someone is moving out of their transitional housing program and is in need of supplies –Primavera provides support as well.

TYP will be collecting supplies all month. Please contact your favorite TYP board member or Philanthropy Committee member if you have any items you can provide from the following list. They will be able to get your donations to our Philanthropy Chair. Otherwise, contact our Philanthropy Chair directly. She would be happy to meet you to collect supplies or answer any questions you may have: Aimee Dolmseth, aimee.dolmseth@callpointe.com, 206-406-9809.
