KMSB "Nogales SCC Profiles," Tuesday, 9/28/10, 6:55 AM

Danna Gallardo, First Things First, SCC, says Arizona voters four years ago voted to have 80 cents from every pack of cigarettes set aside to ensure that every child in the state has the opportunity to start school ready to succeed. She says the goal is to help parents and caregivers prepare children for kindergarten and for life. She says as art of the effort, family resource centers have opened in Nogales and Rio Rico, which offer a “one stop shop” for families of young children to help their kids enter school healthy and ready to learn.
