YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) – 13 On Your Side needs your help to fill backpacks with school supplies for local students.
We have partnered with the Yuma Regional Medical Center Foundation to provide less fortunate children in Yuma County with the school supplies needed to start the new school year.
Volunteers will be stuffing backpacks at the Yuma Palms Mall for two weeks during this month.
The 'Drive for School Supplies' fundraiser has raised more than $25,000 of its $60,000 goal this year.
Today, they are asking for your help to make sure each child in Yuma County has supplies to start the school year off right.
Each backpack costs $13 for 'Drive for School Supplies' to fill.
You can make a donation online at www.yumaregional.org or at the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center office, located at 399 West 32nd Street.
You can also make donations of school supplies such as backpacks, crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, three-ring binders, folders, notebook paper, rulers, erasers and dictionaries can also be made at the Foundation office. All donations are tax-deductible.
