Free groceries, clothing, medical, dental, haircuts, hygiene items and household items will be given out on a first come first served basis at Hope Fest, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow at Kino Stadium, 2500 E. Ajo Way.

The annual event has operated in Tucson for 20 years, and served 20,000 needy Tucsonans last year.  It provides over $1.5 million in goods and services on that one day.

If you'd like to help out, there's a donation drive at Kino Stadium today, until 7 p.m. Donations of gently used clothing, canned food, bottled water, stuffed animals and personal care items are needed and will be distributed at Hope Fest tomorrow.
