Miracle en el Barrio
December 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm MST
Preparation is under way for the fifteenth annual Miracle en el Barrio event, presented by NOVA® Home Loans, scheduled to take place on Friday, December 22, from 9:00am to 2:00pm at St. John’s Church; located at 602 W. Ajo Way in Tucson.
NOVA® employees started this event fifteen years ago in order to provide children on Tucson’s South side with toys during the holidays. Since then, Miracle en el Barrio has evolved into the single largest toy donation event by a private business. Miracle features music, entertainment, and more, in addition to the gifts handed out to each child. Santa Claus is scheduled to arrive at 9:00am to begin handing out toys to the 2,500 plus children expected to attend this year’s event.
Over the past fifteen years, NOVA® Home Loans has given away over 35,000 toys to our local families in need. In addition, several local companies will also be in attendance, giving away food and certificates for services.
The public is welcome to drop off new, unwrapped toys at the event.
NOVA® Home Loans was founded in 1980 in Tucson, Arizona. NOVA® has offices throughout Arizona, Colorado, California and Nevada. NOVA® continues to be the largest privately owned mortgage lender in Arizona.
