Recently, members of the Tucson Kino Rotary Club lent helping hands to a group of volunteers at the Sunnyside Opportunity Center, which is headed by Araceli Mendoza, to organize, pack and distribute hundreds of pounds of citrus, vegetables and 100 bags of toiletries as part of the Sunnyside Foundation’s monthly drive-up Food Box Distribution. 
 
In preparation for this event, Tucson Kino Rotary purchased over $1,000 in shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, bars of soap, hand sanitizer and seventy $10 grocery store gift cards to supplement the food donated by the Community Foodbank of Southern Arizona.
