TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The holiday season is usually a season of giving, whether of time or money. A new report from WalletHub ranks states as most and least charitable, and Arizona did not rank very high.  

In fact, Arizona was ranked 47 out of the 50 states, ranking only higher than California, Louisiana and Rhode Island.  

WalletHub reported nearly 95.4 percent of households in the U.S. donate to charities, contributing an annual average of $2,974. According to a study from the National Philanthropic Trust people in the U.S. gave more than $338 billion, 72 percent of which was directly from individuals.  

Staff at WalletHub used several metrics to compile the list, using volunteer rate, percentage of population who donated time and money, in addition to median contribution to charity.  

The top five states were: 
1 - Utah
2 - Maryland
3 - Idaho
4 - Oregon
5 - South Dakota

The bottom five were: 
46 - Kentucky
47 - Arizona
48 - California
49 - Louisiana
50 - Rhode Island

    The Fire Chief Joseph De Wolf with Sonoita-Elgin Fire District said the rain was a relief but not a reason to relax, as fire season starts to heat up in southern Arizona. He said conditions are monitored daily because they could change just as quickly.
