YOTO – Supporting Students in Need
Youth On Their Own is always in need of items for their pantry and mini-mall. A table will be available at the back of each TWOQC monthly program to receive mini-mall donations. Please consider contributing canned goods (vegetables, fruits, tomato products and chili), peanut butter, pasta or mac and cheese mixes. Students also need full-sized shampoos, conditioners, soaps and deodorants.
If you are an Arizona resident you can still make a contribution to YOTO that can be used for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against your 2017 tax liability. For more information consult yoto.org. Consider mentioning TWOQC in the memo area of your check so YOTO knows how much we are helping support their goals.
