For the third year in a row, the Tucson Arby’s restaurants are raising money for Toys for Tots, now through Dec. 19. On Dec. 20, the 12 area Arby’s managers will go on a shopping spree at the Walmart at 7150 E. Speedway Blvd, using the money donated to buy toys for kids.
During last year’s shopping spree, the Arby’s team had 24 carts of toys lined up at the check-out. Guests at the Arby’s restaurants in Vail and Sahuarita are raising funds for their local food banks, and the Sierra Vista restaurant is supporting the Sierra Vista firefighters toy drive for their local community.
Donations can be made at any Arby’s restaurant in Tucson. The set goal is to raise $45,000 this season, which will be part of almost $200,000 raised and donated to charity this year.
