2022 was an amazing year for SVDP!
Our community was confronted with many obstacles in 2022. Rising prices for gas, food, rent, utilities, and the impact of Covid, flu, allergies, flooding, and shortages. It continues this year. And yet through it all your heartfelt support has had a tremendous impact on our ability to support those in need. Below is a brief summary of our activity for 2022.
We sincerely thank you for your support in 2022. We look forward to your continued support in 2023 by volunteering, donating items to our thrift store, using the AZ Tax Credit to reduce your AZ Taxes, and of course your monetary donations. Thank You!
