CASA MARIA EGG RUN 9/28/21
A big thank you to all UUCT’ers donating hard boiled eggs, other canned and dried foods, clothing, shoes, towels, toiletries, books, pet food and bread bags! We gathered 50 dozen hard boiled eggs!
Celeste Rogers rode “shotgun” which was great, as we had so much to unload with the help of happy hard working CASA MARIA volunteers.
CASA MARIA serves 500 homeless and low income Tucson residents each day! Our hard boiled eggs have become a staple in the daily food bags that each of our hungry neighbors receive! They also get two sandwiches, a piece of fruit, a drink, something savory and something sweet.
Across the street to the kitchen and food take out house, is another house where we drop off the clothing, toiletries, books, kids toys etc. there is a shower available for our homeless friends, and so our towel donations are much appreciated.
In addition to all of this, EL RIO set up a free clinic on Tuesday's and Thursday’s for health checks, immunizations and meds. Anyone needing extra help will be referred to an EL RIO clinic for further assistance. It’s an utterly amazing set up! I wanna say, “three cheers for CASA MARIA”.
