A helping hand from two teens

Our Opinion

Patients at El Rio Community Health Center will find it easier to get to their appointments, thanks to two thoughtful students.

David Charles and Natalee Dawson, students at Salpointe Catholic High School, raised $1,200 to buy 100 one-month bus passes.

The two students and their parents contacted several nonprofits for assistance and also sent e-mails and letters to raise the money.

The passes will be given to homeless patients and others who need them.

The cost of transportation is a burden to many Tucsonans. But for homeless and low-income people, that cost can prevent them from getting the medical care they need.

To donate to the program, call the El Rio Foundation at 205-4947. The teens’ work is an outstanding example of caring and action by two fine young people.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
