Club Members Shop for Youth On Their Own

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.

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Tucson Sunset

The Rotary Club of Tucson Sunset was founded under the principle of Rotary International - "Service Above Self." It has evolved in 25 years as a club devoted to community service, family and friendship.

An intimate group of diverse members, we meet every Tuesday evening from 6:00-7:30 P.M. at Sabbar Shrine, on the west side of Tucson Blvd. 1/2 mile south of Broadway Blvd. Our meetings are spirited and informative with guest speakers addressing us on a variety of tantalizing subjects.

While our club is a small piece of a very large international organization, the impact that we have in our own community is great.

For those who are members, be proud, be active and be a participant. For those considering joining us, we invite you to become a part of Tucson's most enthusiastic and dynamic Rotary Club.
