Disaster Relief

Season 4, Episode 36 of 25

On this week’s show: - The Tucson-based organization World Care has been sending relief supplies to areas in crisis for the past two decades. After Hurricane Harvey and now Hurricane Irma, they’re in disaster mode again. We check in with director Courtney Slanaker to find out how their work is going. -For many years, Tucson’s beloved Tumamoc Hill was closed to visitors during daytime hours. That changed this week – the hill is now open every day from 4 am till 10pm. We chat with Interim director Ben Wilder about that change. - The Arizona Supreme Court said recently that Tucson’s policy of destroying seized guns was out of sync with state law. City Council member Karin Uhlich comes into our to discuss the repeal of that policy. -In many ways, Cody’s friends is similar to World Care. They’re both collecting donations from Tucsonans to ship to areas in Harvey’ s path. But Cody’s Friends is serving a very different population: its sole focus is on animals. An interview with Cody Allen and his mom Amber Allen.
