The children of our unsung heroes

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - While our unsung heroes are out amid the coronavirus outbreak, their children are waiting for them to come back.

One local daycare keeps its doors open for them in spite of all that's going on. The Treehouse Kids Club provides childcare for those deemed, essential workers.

However, the daycare facility is struggling to get the food it needs to feed the kids. Currently, stores have purchase limits on certain items.

Milk is among the essentials Treehouse needs, but can't get enough of, thanks to such purchasing restrictions.

What used to take just a few hours of shopping has now turned into an entire day for Treehouse Kids Club owner, Marcia Worley.

Marcia said she is forced to go to different stores across the city just to get the needed items to fulfill their daily menus.

So far the childcare center has been able to make ends meet, but they still hope things will get easier again for them in the future.
