The Click Family Foundation and Jim and Sandy Peebles will match online monetary gifts to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000 to help families, children and seniors in need this holiday season. The dollar-for-dollar match, until December 31, 2012, will help make up a donation shortfall and a 10% increase in requests for help over last year.

The community is asked to meet the Click and Peebles Holiday Challenge by making a donation online to www.communityfoodbank.org.

For every $1 donated, the Community Food Bank can distribute nearly $9 worth of food or over 4 meals. Last year, the Food Bank distributed over 27 million pounds of food, enough for 62,800 meals every day.

Also remember before the end of the year... Arizona’s charitable tax credit law allows for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on contributions to the Community Food Bank, available to anyone who itemizes on their state return. Taxpayers filing as “single” and “head of household” status may claim a maximum credit of $200. Taxpayers that file as “married filing jointly” may claim a maximum credit of $400. Taxpayers filing as “married filing separately” may claim a maximum credit of $200. Donors have until Monday, December 31, 2012 to meet the requirements.

For more information on the Click and Peebles Holiday Challenge, contact Sio Castillo at (520) 882-3088.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
