Tucson Nonprofit Gets $1M Donation To Help Families During Pandemic
A Tucson nonprofit received more than $1 million to help families during the pandemic.
Two donors, the Open Society Foundations and an anonymous giver, donated $1.25 million to the Sunnyside Foundation to help immigrant families affected by the pandemic.
The foundation has said the money will go toward helping families who otherwise were denied federal aid.
Tucson Mayor Regina Romero noted that some of those denied federal aid are otherwise regarded as essential workers.
The funds will be used provide those families assistance with meals, utilities and rent.
