Good Morning Fellow Rotarians,

For the past couple of years, RYLA 5495 has been actively involved in packing 40,000 meals for hungry families in Arizona. With RYLA just around the corner, I would like to ask you to consider giving your Arizona Tax Credit to this great program. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3 …

1.      Sit down and write a check today to RYLA 5495 – Kids Against Hunger in the amount of $800 (joint tax filers) or $400 (single tax filers);

2.      Mail the check to PO Box 371, Cottonwood, AZ  86326;

3.      Take a nap because we will do the rest (mail you a receipt for your taxes).

My challenge: I am sitting down right now writing a check for $800 to RYLA 5495 – Kids Against Hunger. I am challenging you to do the same in support of our RYLA delegates.

Why this program: It is a great opportunity for our young RYLArians to experience a life-changing event. The great advantage for us is that we get our donation back through our Arizona taxes, plus a federal deduction. Most important, the hungry get fed.

Who is with me?

Special note: You might not be able to give, but, please don’t do nothing. Print the attached flyer, talk with your club, friends, family and others about giving today. Also, if you would like to pay with a debit/credit card, that link will be available soon. Please email me at if you would like me to forward the link once it is ready.
