This year, CITYSunTimes (CST) is joining Arizona Helping Hands (AHH) as they serve more than 3,500 children in foster care (ages 0–12) during the holiday season. The goal for the 22nd Annual Holiday Toy Drive is for each child to receive two new toys and a book, and the organization is relying on the support and generosity of the community now more than ever.
