RYLA 5495 Ponderosa camp is almost here.
This is a life-changing experience for the students who attend. This year, RYLA 5495 Ponderosa will be conducting a brand new community service project; Kids Against Hunger.  RYLA 5495 Pinerock has been participating in this for several years and, in January, packed approximately 45,000 meals. The Meal Packing Service Project each and every year has been one of the major highlights at RYLA 5495 Pinerock. We want ALL the students who attend RYLA 5495 programs to know the benefit of participating in Service Above Self.
Kids Against Hunger is a food packing program that is distributed locally. The goal is to pack 30,000 meals to donate to an emergency food provider in St Johns, which is in Apache County. A recent news article stated that Apache County has the highest number of malnourished children in the country. 
Please help us feed these children. Your donation can be used as an Arizona tax credit, and there is still time for the 2017 tax year. Go to Donate to Kids Against Hunger event at RYLA Ponderosa and make a contribution—the children will be very grateful, and so will we.
