In February, club members and guests, including one Interactor, shopped for food, hygiene and household supplies for Youth On Their Own (YOTO) as part of a D5500 Matching Grant.  The club donated $500 and the district matched that amount.  Items procured for the YOTO Mini Mall include toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, toilet paper and student favorites such as ramen, oatmeal, tuna, mac & cheese and peanut butter.
 
YOTO serves homeless students and from July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020, it served 2,176 youth.
 
Thanks to shoppers:  Pres. Sarah Craddock, Samantha Craddock, Natasha Wrae, Interactor Connor Storie, Cameron Storie, Jerry Jordan, Laura Ziady, Mike Kloehn and Kirsten Stephens.  Additional thanks to Bob Stephens for helping deliver the supplies to YOTO.
The Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) is in constant need of blankets, towels, sheets and pet food.  If anyone has any of the above that they would like to donate, please bring them to a club meeting and Kirsten will get them to PACC.  This is a great opportunity to clean out your closets and help a worthy cause in the process!

Tucson Sunset Rotary continues to accept donations of durable medical equipment to support Crutches 4 Africa international relief efforts, and other local charities supporting those who need medical equipment in Southern Arizona. Items collected include, but are not limited to, crutches, wheelchairs, walkers, canes, elevated toilet seats and  shower chairs. Items may be brought to any Tuesday evening Tucson Sunset Rotary club meeting, or other club functions. In addition, two club members' businesses will accept donated items during their business hours:
