There’s Still Time to Donate to SPA’s “Essentials Drive” to Benefit Aviva Children’s Services

SPA is holding an “Essentials Drive” this week benefiting Aviva Children’s Services.

They are looking for donations of daily essential items – shampoo*, conditioner*, toothpaste*, toothbrushes, hairbrushes, new socks and new underwear of any size.

According to Arizona Department of Child Safety, there are over 15,000 children in their care – either in a foster home or awaiting placement. Aviva Children’s Services is a 501c3 organization dedicated to providing services to those children. One of the ways they support them is by supplying basic, everyday essentials.

SPA – with the help of our amazing middle school students from M House – is running the “Essentials Drive” to assist in getting these kids some of those basic needs.

Donations can be dropped off in the office or in donation boxes by the middle school science classes through November 20. We appreciate any help we can get in making this a successful drive! SPA’s goal is to donate 1,000 items to Aviva Children’s Services.
