Local Resources: This is Tucson

Supporting local and knowing what is happening in your town during this pandemic is critical. For those in Tucson, you are in luck the “This is Tucson” site/app is here to keep you informed.

What is This is Tucson?

Created by the local Tucson.com staff this website and phone app looks to inform you of events happening around town and information you want to know about Tucson. In our current environment, they have stepped up and are reporting daily on city news, resources and other valuable information.

What information do they normally feature?

The site features four main categories: To Do, Eat, Schools and Tucson Life. Even before social distancing was a concern, they would post a weekend planner featuring happenings around town for families, friends, couples and kids. In our current environment they are posting about ways the community is coming together to help support one another, ways you can help, and activities to keep your kids occupied. The school updates are especially helpful for parents who have now stepped into the “teacher” role for digital learning.

What platforms is it available on?

You can download the app from the App Store on iPhones or Google Play for Andriods. You can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or YouTube. If you prefer you can go directly to their website, by clicking here. You can also sign up for their weekly email newsletters.

Does it cost anything?

It is free but I highly recommend becoming a member like myself, donate what you can so this resource continues to help our community!
