Stories of Joy & Desert Cross, Tempe, at the movies

Stories of Joy and Desert Cross, Tempe, went to the movie last weekend, and it was an afternoon of pure JOY! Through a generous grant, SOJ was able to treat families from the Kyrene Resource Center to a private screening of The Grinch. We provided tickets, popcorn, and drinks.

The Kyrene Resource Center is an amazing non-profit that supports families in the Kyrene School District in Tempe, AZ with food, clothing, hygiene products, and schools supplies. You can check them out at Kyrene Resource Center.
