TUCSON - In the roughly four months that News 4 Tucson ran the Season 4 Hope donation drive, over $15,000-worth of donations were collected, along with 13,814 pounds of food and over 26,600 toys.
Beginning in September 2011, News 4 Tucson's Kristi Tedesco held a live weekly donation drive from various locations around Southern Arizona.
Thanks to everyone who generously gave to the Season 4 Hope drive, we were able to raise nearly $10,000 worth of donations for the Gospel Rescue Mission and $6,388 worth of donations for the Emerge Centers Against Domestic Violence.
News 4 Tucson and our partners also collected 13,814 pounds of food for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and a whopping 26,663 toys for Toys for Tots.
Our thanks to all our Season 4 Hope partners: The Jim Click Automotive Team, Desert Diamond Casinos and Entertainment, Pyramid Federal Credit Union, Trico Electric Cooperative, La Mesa RV, Showard Law Firm, Circus Furniture and Arizona Oncology!
Thanks also to Tucson Fire Department, Rural/Metro Fire Department, Corona de Tucson Fire, and Drexel Heights Fire for their help and support!
