Support the YOTO Mini Mall!

YOTO’s Mini Mall is a place students can come to access all the basic needs items their parents would normally have provided for them, had they been able. Basically, they can come in and “shop” for free! It’s also where students come to get guidance and support from YOTO staff and access the many services YOTO provides.

YOTO students may access the Mini Mall once per week for basic needs items such as food, toiletries, school supplies, and some household items.

Students may visit the on-site Mini Mall at our address on Country Club or request items at the click of a button through the YOTO Portal.

Our Mini Mall is stocked through the generosity of community members, organizations, civic clubs, and local businesses – THANK YOU!


We do not accept used items, shoes, clothing, large furniture, or televisions. The Assistance League of Tucson (520-326-8452) may be able to accept these items. Please call us at (520) 293-1136 for all inquiries regarding accepted donations and alternative agencies to whom you may donate.
