You Can Still Make an Impact in 2020!
Thank you for all your support this last year. As you may know, the Arizona Tax Credit helps us continue to do good work in the community, and it benefits YOU — our wonderful donors. This year you can even deduct up to $300 off your federal taxes even if you take the standard deduction!
If you file AZ taxes, you may receive 100 percent back as a Charitable Tax Credit. Better yet, the donation amount has doubled to $400 for individual filers and $800 for joint filers.

Got Legs Furniture & Decor
We opened our first retail store in Scottsdale, AZ in January and then closed due to Covid 19. It took over a year to open the first time - NOW we have reopened, Got Legs Furniture is a labor of love that we are building from the ground up. We are selling higher-end, designer quality items in the shop, and all proceeds will go toward supporting Bridging AZ's mission. The support from customers (and friends) have been overwhelming and beyond our expectations these last 3 months.
Through a donation from the "Birthday Club", a long time supporter we now have jewelry display cases and have started accepting and selling costume jewelry and collectibles.

What Else Have We Been Up To?
A few weeks ago we were approached by a couple of schools and a church about our annual Sock Drive. I wasn't sure we would have a sock drive this year but I was wrong! They brought in over 1,000 pair of socks and we have already distributed about 400 pair to veterans.
If you are interested in helping or donating new socks (dark colors are preferred) you can drop off donations at Got Legs.
We Do Need YOUR Support
This year more than ever Covid has affected everyone
We have spent over $30,000 this year on NEW beds and other furniture for Veterans and disabled clients
Our individual and Tax Credit contributions are down by $50,000 from last year
Acquiring and delivering furniture is a lot of work for 3 people. We have made it this far with the support of our dedicated friends and volunteers, but now we need YOU to help us get to the finish line! If you pay Arizona income tax you get 100% of your donation back as a Tax Credit (up to $400 per taxpayer).
Every donation helps, no matter how small. Your generous contribution is also eligible for an Arizona Tax Credit, so get rewarded for helping a good cause.
