Haven Totes, Inc.

OUR MISSION

Serving our neighbors in need; one family, one child, and one senior at a time.

A 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit

OUR VISION

Haven Totes provides food, new clothing and shoes, and personal care supplies to low income school children and their families, as well as to low income seniors living in care homes.

1) Low income families will gain access to family food boxes along with back to school supplies for their children who are enrolled in our Totes for Kids Program.

2) Children from low income families will receive weekly food totes throughout the school year. These totes are full of easy to prepare and nutritious food items for weekends and other times away from school when these children tend to suffer from food insecurity (hunger).

3) Low income seniors will have snacks, hygiene supplies and other items delivered to their care facilities. Additionally, they will receive visits from our delivery volunteers.

4) With Haven Totes, volunteers, faith communities and supporters will have a place to serve their neighbors in need.

Totes for Kids

Each week, Haven Totes volunteers deliver food totes to schools across Tucson. These food totes are then distributed to the over 500 children children we serve, who suffer from food insecurity (hunger). One in four children in Tucson don’t get enough food to eat or don’t
receive foods that provide the proper nutrition their growing/developing bodies & minds require. These are children from our very own neighborhoods.

Totes for Families

Families of the children we serve are invited to receive a monthly food box that contains family size food items for times when the children are away from school. These times away from school would include fall, spring and summer breaks, as well as Thanksgiving,
Christmas and during our Haven Fair, which occurs in July of each year.

Totes for Seniors

Haven Totes provides food and hygiene items that low income seniors can’t afford. Every two weeks, these totes of age appropriate snacks or hygiene items are delivered to nursing homes by volunteers who spend time visiting with these men and women who might be lonely. Totes will include magazines, puzzles etc. to help keep their minds sharp.

Holiday Gift Totes

Each Christmas season, many of our faith based partners will provide gifts to the tote children they help feed along with any siblings in the family.
