Introduce the Fox 11 Summer of Service

Posted: Updated:

A lot of us are thinking about the heat right now, but, here's something else to think about as we head into summer. We have a new public service campaign we're doing at Fox 11 called 'Summer of Service.' We've partnered with the southern Arizona Volunteer Center to help you find places where you can volunteer.

The mission of the Volunteer Center of southern Arizona is simple: Help connect people who would like to donate their time with organizations looking for volunteers.

For students who may be out of school or for people who may have some extra free time during the summer, it's a great way to get involved and not only get a great experience but make a difference in the community as well.

Over the next several weeks we'll be showing you different organizations looking for help who will benefit from the Fox 11 Summer of Service.

What we hope to do is help these organizations get connected with some volunteers and reach some people that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do.

And we hope to introduce the people of Tucson to some really amazing organizations that are having a great impact in the community.

But it's you who will benefit as well, stepping up to help make Tucson an even better place to live.
