Become a Partner

The Haven Tote Board of Directors continually invites churches and businesses to become “partners” by participating in our projects. The more partners we have, the more assistance we can provide to our neighbors. Haven Totes provides free food to families with school age children who suffer from food insecurity. This is done through our Family Food Pantries where families can stock up on food once each month. Available food items are frozen meats, fresh produce, dairy, bakery and assorted canned and boxed goods. With multiple food pantries in Tucson, Haven Totes is always in need of canned and boxed goods. Conducting a food drive to help feed these children is an awesome way to help and also provide nutritious food items to these families. Won’t you please help?

Make a Donation

Funds are used where the need is greatest. A direct donation to Haven Totes will ensure families and children receive food and seniors receive hygiene items throughout the year. Donating to Haven Totes transforms individual lives and brings change to our schools and community by focusing on the key, underlying issues. We strive for healthy communities for every person in Tucson and Pima County. The staff of Haven Totes is all volunteer, so the maximum amount of your donation will go towards providing food and other services to children from low income families, their families and seniors.

Be a Volunteer

At Haven Totes, we’re always in need of volunteers. Haven Totes is assisted by seven church partners. Each church partner has their own food pantry where collectively, Haven Totes serves over 500 elementary school age children from 22 schools across the Tucson metropolitan area. All of the children we serve are from low income families and each one suffers from food insecurity (hunger).
