SCHOOL TAX CREDIT: Now is the time to take action to support local schools with the Arizona School Tax Credit. You must donate by the end of the year to be able to include the donation on your spring tax filing. Individuals may donate up to $200 to qualified schools to receive a dollar-for-dollar reduction in state taxes. Joint filers may donate up to $400. To learn more, contact officials at your school by December 31st.

FOOD DRIVES: Due to increasing demand, the Community Food Bank is asking for your help to meet the needs of the hungry in our community. You can accept the challenge by hosting your own food drive this holiday season. Community Food Bank staff are available to help you coordinate a drive for your workplace or community group. To learn more about organizing a food drive, or to make a donation, visit http://www.communityfoodbank.com/.

UNITED NEGRO COLLEGE FUND: Every day we count on things like the traffic light, the mailbox and the elevator. Did you know they were invented by African Americans? Support minority education today, so we don’t miss out on the next big idea tomorrow. A mind is a terrible thing to waste! Support the United Negro College Fund at http://uncf.org/ or 1-800-332-UNCF.
