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.
We have suspended our regular meeting until further notice.  We are now conducting our meetings via the ZOOM platform.   If you need to speak to someone, you can call/text the Club President, Sarah Craddock at 520-954-1814.

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!
