TYH Local Impact
TYH BACKPACK BUDDIES PROGRAM
TYH is excited to partner with Oak Park Elementary in Des Moines, Iowa. 100% of students at Oak Park are eligible for the free lunch program. During 2020-2021 school year, TYH provided weekend bags of kid-friendly food to 20 children. The need has only increased with the covid epidemic.
TYH’s 2021-2022 goal is to provide 25 students weekend backpacks of food. It costs $40 a month to provide one student with this additional nutritional support. The 5th Annual TYH Golf Classic fundraiser supports this project.
TYH continues to seek other partners to help provide more students with weekend food. TYH and Oak Park staff members thanks the Ankeny Rotary for their donation of $1000 for this year’s Backpack Buddy Program.
TYH offers a special thanks to VESSEL Golf for their generous donation of VESSEL student back packs for this program and also to share with Edmunds Elementary. Kids love these incredible backpacks.
TYH Global Impact
SAVE THE RAIN
TYH has partnered for 11 years with Save the Rain and Rotary International to provide 4 Tanzanian communities with a sustainable water source. Raising over $29,500, the TYH Foundation has helped build rain collection systems at 4 primary schools, home collection systems and planted 500 Morenga trees. In 2019, $5000 was donated by TYH to Save the Rain efforts with an exciting Rotary International Grant. The grant will provide children with clean water for life, secure mid-day meals, and pilot replacement crops to corn to free communities from hunger and inevitable poverty.
