The City of Yuma
has asked for The Salvation Army’s help
in providing food and shelter to people in need who have permission to travel
in the United States and are awaiting transport
to their final host destinations.

 

The Yuma Community Food Bank and Immaculate Conception Catholic Church are among the other community organizations that have banded together in The Yuma Humanitarian Project, and we are grateful for their support.

Following is a list of donation items needed. Items can be dropped off at the Yuma Community Food Bank (2404 E. 24th St.) weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., or at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (505 S. Ave. B) weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
