Those receiving food donations will be using gloves and masks. Donors are asked to remain in their car and allow the volunteers to remove the donated items so that the risk of contact is minimal.

Those unable to purchase food or drop it off may make an on-line donation to St Vincent de Paul www.svdptucson.org.
