Daycare & Childcare Options
There is no current statewide or national order to close all child-care programs. Until we receive something from the Governor or the President, it is an individual business decision. Here is more information on Covid-19 resources & Child Care options. DES is working with other state partners to develop a network of child care options for the community need, prioritizing care for the children of first responders and emergency personnel. If your child care provider has closed and you are in need of child care, please contact the CCR&R Child Care Information Line at 1-800-308-9000 or online at www.azccrr.com.

Giving Back in Uncertain Times
RED DAY - Opportunity To Give Back
We so excited to announce that despite not being able to get together for our annual RED Day with the Amy Jones Real Estate Group and Keller Williams Integrity First Mesa/Gilbert, we are launching a campaign to GIVE BACK!
The annual day of service is dedicated to making a MASSIVE impact on our community - and we've had to get creative in the face of COVID-19.
Instead of just ONE day of service, we are giving YOU the chance to participate in donating to one of THREE worthy causes between now and May 14th.
Drop off donations M-F between 8am-NOON or we will come to you! Just send us a message or give us a call.
Check out the flier below and let me know if you can drop off donations or want us to pick them up from your porch. So many great ways to get involved this year - thank you all for being YOU!
Nominate Your Local Hometown Hero
In times like this, we are reminded of the everyday heroes in our communities. People who go above and beyond to help their neighbors and the community as a whole. All of us at Keller Williams Integrity First would like to honor the every day people who have brought positivity into our community by giving them a special gift on MAY 14th as part of our yearly community service day “Red Day.”
To do this, we need your help! Who do you know, that stand out above the rest, and even in the darkest of times has shown through and brought light into the lives of others around you. To nominate your “community hero” we ask that you submit their name and information, along with how they have serviced the community. Thank you for your help in identifying these amazing neighbors that prove that “Together, Everyone achieves more”
