Hot Pancake Breakfast Served to Hundreds of Needy in Yuma


YUMA, AZ - Hundreds enjoyed a hot breakfast this morning at Gateway Park to close out Hunger Homelessness awareness week. 

All last week crossroads mission, The Salvation Army and the Yuma Community Food Bank held events in observation of those less fortunate.

Today over 350 homeless, poor, and needy were served hot pancakes while enjoying live music and other entertainment.

Crossroads Mission Executive Director Myra Garlitt say this is an annual event done just before Thanksgiving. She says, "Yuma County and the City of Yuma are great supporters of the non-profit agencies here and on behalf of all of them I just want to say to our community thank you very much."

As in years past a traditional turkey dinner will be provided at Crossroads Mission on Thanksgiving Day from 11a.m. to 1p.m. Volunteers should arrive by 10 a.m.
